The beer when poured into a pint glass left about a three-quarter-inch head which dissipated quickly. The color was dark brown and opaque, with little light transmission when held to a lamp. The nose was of burnt wood with malty undercurrents. The mouthfeel was of medium consistency, with the taste an initial impression of roasted almonds and warm chocolate which transitioned to a malty finish. The beer seemed more like a stout and reminded me of a more watery version of Guinness. An interesting beer from an excellent brewery. Worth a try.
