Bottle transported by Alex. Thanks! Dark brown color with golden notes and a tan head that ran off at once. Great aromas of chocolate and coffee. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is coffee, toast/burnt malt and a bit of milk chocolate. Finishes pretty dry, very smooth, with something that might be wood smoke. Recommended.
