Bottle. Pours a dark brown black, with a wooden tinge. Good-sized, fairly thick, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is some smokiness in the beginning. A lot of dark, fruity maltiness later. Dark fruit, some toast, malt bread. Light liquorice and roast, light earthiness and raisin. Taste is very malty, some roast, some liquorice, lightly alcoholic. Dark fruit, very malt-forward. Dark malt, not roasted malt. Fairly medium with medium carbonation.
