Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some woody notes, roasted malt and black chocolate notes is pretty nice. Taste is a nice mix of roasted malt with some woody notes, some bitter notes and a woody finish with hints of residual sugar with nice chocolate notes also noticeable. Body is full with nice creamy body and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Solid beer with nice level of complexity while retaining some good drinkability attribute.
