Dark brown, almost black, huge frothy head. Aroma is loaded with citrus hops, hints of chocolate and roast. Flavor much the same, with some butter through the backend. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Butter detracts a bit, but otherwise well done.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, butterscotch, light grapefruit, and faint roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with chocolate and light citrus. It finishes with grapefruit, roast, and a touch of butterscotch that hangs around in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
