Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a tiny, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma features spicy phenols galore, along with some roastiness. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is bitter, ashy and spicy with a suggestion of acidity. Lengthy, burnt, painfully bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
