Black in color with just a small tan head. There’s some sweet vanilla on the nose, coffee, and nuts. Cocoa powder, roasted malt, and some spice of nutmeg. Slight sweetness of molasses to the flavor. Coffee, vanilla, and hazelnut. Cocoa, roasted malt, and a hint of spice. Body is a little thin and watery, but the beer is nice other than that.
