330ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee and mild hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with a roasty malt bitterness and mild hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. A very nice surprise as it well exceeded my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Completely black underneath a giant, frothy, khaki head. Smells pretty good, too, with lots of toffee and some bit alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is surprising light and slick, but there are a lot of flavors here to like. Toffee, rum, brown sugar, big alcohol bite, and at 7.6% ABV, that’s not surprising. The hops are kind of funky, and not necessarily in a good way.
I didn’t have big expectations, but this is unique and pretty tasty. Worth giving a toss
