(22oz bottle) Black body and a medium, creamy chocolate head. Smooth roasted malt aroma, lightly smoky, dark chocolate, espresso. The hops that werenít present in the aroma come through in the taste: at first in the front along with light acidity, fading on the way back with a roasted chocolate finish, and the hops coming back in the after taste. Floral and citrus notes. Medium- to full-bodied with lots of lace left on the glass.
