From the 11.1 fl. oz. flat bottle with an expiration date of 11-2013 and lot no. 425. The pour is a beautiful dark brown to nearly black with a smallish tan head that lingers for a few minutes. The aroma is wonderfully roasty with sweet malts and a little coffee and any hops come across as muted but clean. The body is medium but a little astringent. The taste tends to be sweet with a low bitterness at the end. Likable.
