22oz bottle, consumed at home. Poured a near pitch black color with a nice, medium sized totally brown head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts - dark bakers chocolate. Very smooth, with some nice dry chocolate ganache with some molasses. This is one of those beers I thought I had had a long time ago, but just realized I hadn't. Very good!
