Pours a dark brown almost black with khaki colored head, very viscous as well. Roasted malts, raw cocoa, dark chocolate, and some coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bittersweet note similar to unsweetened dark cocoa. Nice.

GABF 2014. Viscous and dark black. Dark chocolate and burnt coffee nose. Taste follows, with a lot of ashy character. Would like to have this aged and let more of the savory elements come out.
