Dark black-brown pour with a tight tan head. The nose is awesome. Rich cocoa and sweet chocolate. A bit of chewy cocoa and some earthy bitterness. Rich and chewy. Sticky bit not cloying. Lingering roastiness on the back. Full-bodied through the middle with some lightly leathery character. Delicious.
