Bottle acquired in trade with ericandersnavy. Black along with a touch of brown. Cola/caramel colored head. Tobacco & smoke aroma, some trailing roasted malt as well. Really smokey roasted malt flavors; almost burnt toast and some sweet cocoa in the background. Overall, this is good! I dig the nice smokey notes that are not overpowering.
