650 mL bottle. 2010 vintage. May have left it a bit too long. Black with not much head. Sweet, malt aroma has a little cocoa powder, maraschino cherries and soy sauce. Flavour is still nig, body is still creamy, but the carbonation has flattened out a bit. Have to try one fresher.

Pours black. There is little head and the first pour, but it develops after the pour with lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and cocoa. It has a smooth, rich texture with flavors of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, and oats. The lively carbonation produces a tingling sensation with a bitter finish.
