Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is of roasted malts, a little chocolate, coffee, and metal. Heavier palate, slight carbonation. Flavor is of malts, oak, coffee, a little booze, and something metallic. Leaves an oaked malt finish. Decent stuff for an amber. Almost a little too sweet for me though.
