Pours jet black with a big frothy tan head that sticks around. Very clear, some ruby highlights around the edges. Smooth coffee like toasted malt dominates the aroma with some toasty notes behind it. Big malt flavor, tastes of toasted bread crust, with a touch of caramel and a smooth toasty coffee note, the roast is very smooth with no astringency. Mouth feel is creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation. Really nice example, a little more of a caramel than I expected.
