Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt, licorice, and lots of char and ash on the nose. Light smoke, pine, and some herbal hops. Flavor is quite bitter and roast forward. Some licorice, burnt sugar, and coffee. Minimal sweetness to it, just a touch of molasses. Kind of leathery and herbal...a touch smokey as well.
