The pour was a very dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that had great retention, slowly reducing to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a burnt bread malt, light resin hops and a bold leathery yeast with notes of bakers’ chocolate, roasted coffee and a charred smoky scent.
The taste was bitter, malty and rather roasty with a strong bitter chocolate note from the beginning, progressing with a strong hoppiness, a bitter coffee presence and a bold charred taste towards the end. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow, with a mild charred hoppy taste hitting you right in the back of the throat and lingering for just a little while longer.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a quite lively carbonation.
Overall this was a bold and roasty Stout with a smoky charred finish and a good smooth drinkability...
