Pours a warm, dark, semi-transparent brown with a nice thick light tan head that hangs around for a bit and leaves just a little lacing. Aroma has licorice, unsweet chocolate and miso notes plus a hint of molasses. Flavor seems a bit on the thin side, smoky with woody, unsweet chocolate and licorice notes, not great but still pleasing. Maybe this was from not the best batch, or it's better on-tap. Texture has average body and above-average fizz. Overall, decent if not great, and worth a try.
