12oz bottle into an American pint glass.

A: The body is a deep mahogany, letting no light through. 2 fingers of dark tan head, good retention, medium amount of fine lace.

S: Lots of roasted malt, hints of vanilla and chocolate. The roastyness dominates.

T: Roasted malts, chocolate, and vanilla all come in together in the front. As the beer warms, it is joined by a caramel note form the roasted grains, and a slight flavor of char. Finishes with a chocolatey bitterness at the end that lingers. As the beer warms, the flavors seem to join and become smoother, though even cool it is never harsh.

M: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated, creamy feel. Slightly dry as it finishes.

O: Easy to drink. The aroma of the beer is deceptive, after smelling was afraid it wouldn't be very tasty...so wrong. Really complex beer, in fact so complex, I am not sure my notes are really accurate or doing the beer justice. Really enjoyable to drink.
