Dark black with a thin khaki head. Aroma was super dark and sticky with heavy notes of brown sugar, roasted dark chocolate syrup, and a little molasses. Flavor was large and delicious and thick. Lots of dark chocolate cake tones, brown sugar sweetness, a warming boozy tone like rum or bourbon, a little tone of roasted coffee, black licorice/molasses, on a sticky sweet finish that was warm and enticing with a hint of vanilla.
