Pours to a lacey tan head and very dark brown color. Aroma is toasty smoky malts and sweet alcohol. Flavor is a very dry, brandy-like affair featuring the roasted grains throughout. Mouthfeel is medium and CO2 is light. A great dry sipper.

Completely black color, medium carbonation as well as body. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice, and yeast. Taste is identical, a little bit of coffee which didn't show up in the aroma. The licorice isn't very strong which is a good thing. Definitely needs to warm up which greatly improves the flavor
