Opaque brown-black with a small light brown head. Roasty and char malt aroma with high medicinal notes. Roast malt flavor dominates, with some earthen tones and a muted chalky chocolate. Lingering roasty bitterness in the finish with returning ashen component. Medium mouthfeel with some oat silkiness.

Bottle thanks to duchammer: Poured a pitch black with tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and licorice notes. The aroma got me excited, but the taste was a roast and metallic mess.

Tap at Craft Cafe Imazato. Smooth aroma, a mix of dark and milk chocolate. Pitch black, thin creamy tan head and good lacing. Rich roasty initial, with deceptive hopping, smooth in mid and final with the oatmeal, and nice long hop tracks. Medium heavy body. Seriously good.
