This beer poured with a small to medium, darker rich brown head. Beer color is a blackish brown. No light penetrated the glass when held up to the light. The aroma is dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar and booziness. In the taste I get a good amount of roasted malts, almost smoky. There is also some cocoa, molasses, dark fruit. A little boozy - warms you up a bit. Creamy mouth feel. Leaves you with some of that cocoa powder-like dryness on the tongue and some smoky sweetness.
