Poured into porter glass. It is very dark black with a caramel-colored head. Didn’t leave much lace as I drank it. Aroma was roasted (burnt) coffee and a mild sweetness. My wife and I couldn’t call the sweetness out by name until the next morning. I took a whiff of the warm remnants left in the glass and immediately picked up on raisins or prunes. Taste had average porter bitterness. Viscosity was above average and higher alcohol was apparent. Decent aftertaste. I think I actually served it too cold at first (maybe 40 deg or so). As it warmed, I really enjoyed it more.
