Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has roasty malts and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows suit and adds some mild vanilla...one dimensional but decent. Mouthfeel is light yet creamy with a slightly roasty finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance- Clear cola brown with a thick fizzy tan head, average lasting and lace.
Aroma- Nothing much to put here, hardly any aroma at all.
Flavor- Sweet, roasted malts, silky, not getting much hops or molasses at all. Rather plain.

Big bottle split with brother and father. Aroma is vanilla bean, some molasses, dark fruits, and dark chocolate. Pours dark brown and thin with a small wispy white head. Taste follows suit with dark fruits, mince meat, vanilla, and chocolate. Very thin mouthfeel is a little distracting but I definitely enjoyed the flavor profile. Nice.
