500 ml bottle. Pitch black body with a moderate sized off-white had. Quite strong and good aroma of dark malt, oak, mild roast and alcohol in a positive way. Flavor is pleasant, smooth, dark, roasted malt, chocolate, berries, oak, moderate bitterness and warming alcohol. Promising but not quite there, feels slightly out of balance but still nice.
