Good head for a bar pour. Leaves ring lace with streaks. Near black where no light shines through.

Full of aroma--plenty of cocoa. I must admit I don't know what a roasted pecan is supposed to smell like, but I do detect a nutty aroma I would describe as walnut. Mild smokiness.

Starts mild but the burnt malts really take over. The bodied is surprisingly thin. The aftertaste is like burnt toast. Bready. High carbonation. Despite the body, it still has a chewy element to the mouthfeel.
