A little light on the nose, but very big on flavor. Roasty, a little sweet, a little chocolate, balanced with just the right amount of hops.

Bottle - Thinner black pour with nice off white head. Nose of roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is more chocolate than vanilla and the typical metallic taste with the style is not as pronounced. Good stuff.
