It pours a rather viscous black liquid with barely any head. Aroma of roasted malts and hop resins; nice but mild. Full bodied, with round mouthfeel; strong roasted malt flavor, with dark chocolate, light residual sweetness, some ashes, a bit of salty liquorice, and very strong bitterness (some of it from the roastiness).
Solid beer, very good; fresher should be better.
