Bottle: dense black beer with medium to light head and moderate lace. Dark, roasted malty nose. Mocha. Very dark chocolate or cocoa powder. Hint of hops. The nose is almost every brooding. Dry palate. Very dense and high bitterness. A lot of weight but not balanced. Lacks the creaminess to match the bitterness.

The aroma is loaded with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.
The taste builds from chocolate sweet, to bitter chocolate and coffee and finishes dry roasted malt with a touch of bitter.
