(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours an obsidian black body with a thick meniscus of cocoa tan foam that soon breaks up into a thick ring.

S- The inky black roasted barley has hints of cold espresso that grow with some dark graham malt sweetness in the finish. There is a vegetal, capsicum note and some iodine notes that grow in the finish aswell.

T- The inky black malt flavor has some green vegetal and capsicum quality without any heat to it and a dark chocolate malt finish. There is a cold espresso flavor in the finish that grows and compliments the other malt flavors. The black roasted bitterness lingers for a moment in the finish.

M- The full mouthfeel has a luscious thickness with a gentle alcohol warmth that finishes each sip nicely.

O- This beer has a nice rich depth to it with the espresso adding a nice quality to the beer without being over the top. It was delicious but the vegetal flavor was a bit odd and got in the way of the other flavors. I’m not sure if this would age out or get worse but it could really improve if the coffee flavor stayed and the vegetal note left.
