Solid shiny black with a thick tan head leaving curtain lacing.

This was on nitro, so another muted nose, with roasted malt, baker's cocoa, and a hint of mint or some other herb.

Taste is chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. I am getting a more dark chocolate essence, actually like a chocolate covered coffee bean. Well then!

Smooth, slick and semi-dry.
