Pours opaque with a third of a glass full of brown, thick foam. Retention is inspiring, frothing as it recedes. No real lacing to speak of.
Aroma first impresses with lots of dark fruits and roasted malt. Chocolate and sweetness come next with coffee bringing up the rear.
Taste is the same. Roasted malt and dark cherry and raisins make the up the flavors. The finish is two fold: bitter chocolate early that slowly brings up coffee, transitioning back to chocolate. Long lasting.
Big end of medium body with minimal carbonation. Hints of alcohol accompany the dry, sticky lips.
The finish leaves me bewildered as there are other flavors that I can't quite put my finger. A good example that is quite nice. Enjoy!
