22oz bottle into an English pint. Pours a deep brown w/ a thick, creamy khaki head, webs of glistening lace.

Aroma is chocolatey and bitter with notes of dark fruit and molasses. Smells damn good.

Taste is a blend of bitter roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate with hints of dark fruit and vanilla.

Mouthfeel is smooth and light, drinkable, w/ a clean dry finish.

Overall a solid representation of the style. I'm not finding much fault with this beer.
