On tap at Eulogy. Black brown with a dark tan head. Nose is chocolate, coffee and raisin. Creamy medium body with a mild tingle; a bit sticky. Taste is chocolate, hay and raisin with a touch of orange peel. Finishes dry with wood. Good, really good, but needed that extra something to kick it over the top, hence the Imperial Biscotti.
