A: The beer is black when viewed from afar—upon closer inspection and when held up to a bright light dark amber is visible near the bottom of the glass and a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high tan head that died down rather quickly, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of burnt and roasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate malts. The smell becomes stronger once the beer warms up.
T: The taste very much follows the smell, except that the chocolaty flavors are a lot stronger and there is a light amount of hop bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but has a nice amount of malty aromas and flavors, particularly those of chocolate malts. I found it to be a good representation of the style.
