9/XII/13 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2013-1133) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, mocha, coffee grit, burnt caramel, vanilla. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet, heavy caramel, alcohol, sugary, fudge, dark chocolate. Aftertaste: overripe banana, sweet, caramel, dark chocolate, mocha, some coffee, vanilla, sugary. Not bad, but a bit too sweet for my liking.
