Like a Dark Chocolate Champagne. Love the robust caramel smell. One of the best room-temp beers you'll ever have. If my word means anything of course. Drank out of the bottle, but probably would have enjoyed in a glass , cold.

Tons of carbonation, beautiful roasted malt flavors, as well as some dark chocolate, esters, and slight hop bitterness. Wasn't expecting much but it was definitely a treat.
