12 ounce can of pores a dark dark brown almost jet black very highly carbonated with a huge meringue like head. Had to wait about five minutes before they had to go down to drink. Raisiny any aroma with a faint smell of cigarettes and chocolate. Light bodied. Not a whole a lot of flavor with a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste.
