Really bad. Going to have to try thus again in case it is a bad bottle. Hardly any lacing, like greasy dish water. Tastes bitter and flat. Almost undrinkable.

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head of foam that disappeared quickly. Light aroma of roasted nuts. Tastes of nuts and malt. Light body. Not enough body for such a dark ale.

Look: pours a dark brown. Dark red color when held to the light. White head that turns into thick lacing.
Smell: ripe dark fruit smell. Cherries and raisins. Strong malt
Taste: strong cherries. Maybe a red apple
Feel: not to thick but a good beer. Nice carbonation. Smooth a lifter taste.
Overall: not a bad beer. Sweet on the nose and tongue.
