The beer pours an extremely dark brown and ruby when held to the light, black for all other appearances. There is a tall, foamy, and very thick head of tan foam. The aroma is dark roasted malts, sweet, chocolatey, with some pleasant char. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same dark roasted notes, but adding in a blast of bitterness to cut down on the sweetness. The beer drinks very smooth, round, and rich, with a light tingle of carbonation.
