The pour is black in color with a creamy khaki head. A fairly nice aroma to this beer. Plenty of coffee and roasted malt. Some chocolate, a light earthy hoppiness, and some mild toffee sweetness. The flavor has more of a charred quality to it. Some hints of ash and acidity. Coffee, licorice, and intense roast. Lacks the sweetness of the chocolate and toffee that were present on the nose. A light bitterness on the finish.
