Brown in color with some crimson when light interferes. Creamy half inch tan head wants to stick around.

Light smokey hints, bit of chocolate and roast malts. Unfortunately I can never smell Shit out of a pint glass.

Light oak not sure if this isn't just from oak chips but for a beer like munich dark I was expecting much more character and complexity from the barrel aging. Milk chocolate, toffee, vanilla, and earth. Somewhat dissapointing but it is harpoon.
