Pour is extremely dark brown, murky, tan head. Nose has olive, chocolate malt, some peat and a light smokiness to it. Hints of caramel and brown sugar with a tough of dates. Taste is much more smokey and peaty, almost scotch esq. meaty an salty in the flavor, hints of the rich chocolate malt. Some sweeter berry malt in back. Maybe some iodine in there. Body is full with soft carb and creamy feel.
