StFun supplied. Thanks! 650 mL bottle containing a darkish wooded brown with which a khaki head half a fingernail in length rested on. Smells fairly sweet, boozy and caramelized. Raisins on the forefront, met with pilsener malt, ash, and chocolate potato chips. Perhaps some yeast, as well. Tastes basically how it smells: raisins, caramels, smoke and artificial chocolate. Heat, soured milk, tobacco and yeast by swallow. Was kind of a like a dark beer smoothie wherein a few dark beers are blended together in a blender hoping for the best. This is not terrible, or great. It’s... fine, for the most part.

Shared at CK with gendv138 and solidfunk. Thanks! Body was a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was some peat, smoked malts, touch of dark chocolate and some molasses. Flavor was light smoke, some chocolate, malts. Okay, but this one wasn’t really my thing.

Bomber from trade with Crajun. Dark cola colored pour with a thin light brown head. Little lacing. Full aroma of roasted malt, molasses, dark fruit and some booze sugars. Complex flavor with brown bread, dark chocolate, coffee roast and a plum/date fruitiness. Medium on the palate, soft on the carbonation, alcohol nicely hidden at 9%.
