Dark mahogany color, almost black; flat. Light caramel aroma. Good body strength, strong caramel flavor, with dark chocolate tones, that become quite strong towards the end, as well as the bitterness; there are also roasted nuts at the end. Reasonable Strong Ale (not sweet enough to be a Barley Wine), a bit too much roasted for me.
