It pours black with a 1 finger head of tannish foam leaving some decent lacing behind.
It smells kind of roasty, kind of hoppy, kind of balanced between the 2. I don't find the aroma very assertive.
The taste is more than just roasty, more like burnt. The hop presence is fairly non descript; basically just bitter. Add the burnt maltiness to the hop bitterness and you get bitter and dry. Like a fair example of a Foreign Export Stout.
The body feels like on the low end of medium with good carbonation.
I have to say that my palate is tiring quickly with this brew. Too one dimensional of a bitterness factor. I'm a bit pleased that I don't have more bottles...
