Bottle. Deep brown body, red highlights. Fizzy, beige head, diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, ash. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dry roast finish with a hint of sweet sugar/molasses/lactic that turns tart, then bitter. Tastes of nuts, roast, vanilla and a note of coffee. A bit flabby, watery going into the finish, but overall a nice collection of aromas and flavors. Enjoyable and easy drinking.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very strong aroma of vanilla, with some almond and coconut(?). Taste is nutty, but not in a good way. Itís honestly a bit offsetting. Long finish, almost oily, with some definite bitterness. Not a huge fan.
