Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured jet black with a thin, light tan head. Nose of roasted malts. Thick body, I think the walnuts really contributed to the mouthfeel here. Nutty and toasted sugars to balance. Viscous and malty with roast, dark chocolate, earthy nuts and maybe some bitter coffee.

Thanks to Spence for sharing this, and word to Jackie-Os for the continual Zappa love. Deep and, yes, oily look to it, not quite at the motor oil end of the spectrum but getting there. Moderate carbonation and café au lait head. Nose is pretty inviting, with hints of anise among the usual dark roasts, char, and bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, but nothing that interferes too much. Taste is a bit better than the fairly by-the-numbers nose, and is more like a nice Belgian chocolate and less like burning.

22 ounce bottle that pours midnight black with very thin tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, choclate, nuts, and vanilla. Flavors of coffee and choclate at first,, as beer warms, more of the walnut flavors come through. Really good beer.
