Pours a black body with an averaged-sized, creamy and very dense beige head. Good lacing. The aroma is strong and dark roasted with coffee and ash, hints of dark berries in the back. Strong flavours, very ashy and lots of dry, bitter, dark roasted coffee. Light to moderate sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Perfect mouthfeel, the texture is incredibly smooth and creamy. A lovely beer!
