Pours clear with ample, deep tan foam that is tightly packed. Retention is about average or so, with foam frothing up as it dissipates.
Aroma is faint. Chocolate, dark fruits, and some burnt malts shown through.
Taste is sweet up front and in the end. The middle brings some burnt and roasted malt flavors that hang around into the finish. Chocolate bitterness is also in the finish, and although light, lasts a bit.
Full body with moderate carbonation yet a nice creamy mouth feel.
Crank up the nose a notch and this would be an outstanding brew. There are some other flaws but a really nice beer in the mouth. Gives me a touch of faith. Enjoy!
