Poured a deep, opaque slightly watery black from the bomber with a very active and foamy slightly off white head. Chocolate, roasted malts and nuts in the nose. Flavor is very sweet and malty, delicious, caramel, nuts, toffee etc. Finish brings the coffee flavor, soft and slightly chalky on the tongue. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
