Very similar to the Max Black, with the burned brownies and smoke although there was more brownie and less burning and smoking. The flavor is more subdued, less sharp. It's also darker than the Black with smaller highlights that are just brown instead of ruby. That's topped by a fluffy light tan head that is slow to leave.
