Nose is light roasty, fruity, Aroma is very dark chocolate, quinine, coffee, light herbs, light smoke, coal, black tea, excellent balance. Medium sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting dark chocolate, quite hoppy but cocolate flavor covers it. Deep throath roasty bitterness. Full body, slick texture, average carbonation. Not too heavy, very tasty, excellent dessert beer.
