BB Dec 2, 2013

Beer is jet black with a small tan head. Head fades pretty quickly.

Nose is dominated by roast malt. Vanilla is there, and a bit of coffee. Nice.

Like the nose, a lot of roasted malt in the flavour, along with a bunch of dark chocolate, some vanilla and coffee. Slightly smoky. No surprises here, but very flavourful and tasty. Some bitterness in the beer, but a fairly sweet finish. Yum.

Medium bodied, moderate to highly carbonated, very smooth. Nice feel.

Overall, really good. Wish I could buy it locally, as I expect I would go through a lot of it. Really nice, big flavour in a fairly low ABV beer.
