Poured a rich medium brownish red with a very small white head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was heavy of dark roasted malts, light resin hops and a doughy sweet yeast with strong notes of coffee, dark chocolate and raisons. It tasted lightly bitter-sweet and quite malty in the beginning and finished about the same with notes coffee, chocolate and the sweetness of dried fruit. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and dry in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall an outstanding, flavorful brew. Worth drinking many, many more !!!!
