Pours black with a smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, licorice. Taste is slightly more roasted, and has some caramel. Fairly sweet and round, and overall extremely gentle and balanced. Medium carb. On the edge of being boring though.

Look: Pours with average, semi-thick (bottom has small bubbles, they get bigger towards the top), creamy, mocha head. It has good retention, mostly diminishing; patchy, thin, thick layer leaves some fine lacing. Dark with light brown (maybe some amber) hue, can’t see through but the pour was with lighter body.
Smell: Freshness from plums and black berries and smooth roast with mostly milk chocolate and caramel. Some oats and grain with light espresso underline too. Maybe a bit of lemon hops also in the mix.
Taste: Fresh start with dark berries and plum dumplings - light sourness. Continues into medium light sweetness with smooth darker malt character, roast, milk chocolate, caramel. Light mineral notes present. The end is also smooth, light bitterness, mostly roast with milk chocolate. Some light sourness comes in the after too.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, but creamy, smooth with right amount of carbonation - enhances the silky feeling.
Overall: Suiting name, nothing stands out, everything relatively smooth, light and well balanced, yet has many thing to show.
