This beer poured with a thin, tan colored head. Beer color is a very dark reddish brown. When held up to the light, only a tiny amount of light showed through the glass. I am getting primarily chocolate and roasted malt in the milder aroma, perhaps a bit of coffee. The taste is more of the same - roasted malts and chocolate/cocoa. I don't really notice the higher alcohol. There is some bitterness in the background that sticks around for the aftertaste with the cocoa. A somewhat heavier mouth feel, with lighter carbonation.
