Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head, no lacing and light carbonation. Nose of roasted barley, oatmeal, chocolate, malts and some mild hops. Flavor has a sweeter malty chocolate & oatmeal taste with some caramel-toffee maltiness and mild hoppiness. Body is moderate but with some thickness and the carbonation is fairly mild. Pretty creamy and tasty!
