Aroma of dark toasted malt. Near opaque black color with a minimal off-white head. A bit thin in body with mild but assertive carbonation. It is very smooth. The flavor is mellow dark toasted malt. Not at all harsh. The finish is very slightly sweet (like dark fruit), mostly toasty. Could be a light stout.
