Pours a deep mahogany brown with a big two finger tan head. Good retention on the head with lacing sheeting down the sides of the glass before I take my first sip. The lacing is thick and seems to almost have a sugary shimmer to it.
The aroma is sweet malt, dark roasted malts, maybe a hint of coffee as well as a milky lactose. The aroma has a creaminess to it that is very inviting.
The taste is similar to the aroma. Bold roasted malts work into a milky sweet chocolate flavor and finishes with a slightly bitter coffee flavor.
Medium to full body with a light carbonation. A dryness on the palate with a sweet stickiness on the lips.
Overall an enjoyable beer. Nice flavors that blend well together. The flavors seem a bit muted to me, if everything was bumped up a notch, this beer would be a real stand out in the crowd. An easy drinking beer that I would have again. Try one!
