Dark brown, mostly black and looks the consistency of petrol. Head is mocha, small bubbles with thin crown on top. Decent lacing. Pretty nice.

Smells roasty, fairly bitter. Big espresso notes with some cacao, vanilla bean and strong caramel. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Taste is quite sweet. Caramel upfront with notes of cocoa and vanilla aplenty. Fair espresso bitterness starts late-mid and goes to the end. Fairly bitter, but a nice overall sweetness. Pretty decent.

A bit dry; yeah OK but a bit thin at times and has a bit of a hump midway.

Maybe a bit portery? Possibly a bit thin, but very decent.
