Poured into a glass stein. Absolutely pitch black with two fingers of tan head. Looks perfect.
Rich molasses smell and some vanilla bean.
Tastes like molasses also. A balanced bitterness throughout with a burnt malt at the end.
Thick, almost creamy body with low carbonation.
Wow. Calling it a benchmark. Guinness has brought it strong on this one.
