Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma: roast, coffee, liquorice. Taste expands on that, adding liquorice, citrus and resin notes, dark chocolate. Light-medium sweetness, medium-high bitterness and a slight sourness. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Nice long dry finish. The hoppy notes hint a bit towards black ipa. Like!
