Roast aroma. Dark coloured a little rich on the palate and fruity with a hint of dryness in a bitter roast finish.

nothing offensive here. Pour: Dark choco brown, light choco tan head, which fizzes to a lace. Nose: Roasty, toasty, sweet choco, specialty dark grain. Taste: sweet dark malts, malt roast and chocolate, with a balanced hop finish. Easy, and enjoyable to drink.

750ml bottle thanks to blutt59.
Pitch black pour - nice deep coffee and chocolate aromas. Flavor is more of the same, very smooth and silky. Just enough sweetness - this one really did it for me.
