Wow - didnít think my sister would be handing me something that wasnít even in the DB yet (and a new country to boot), but there you go. Pours a dark black colour with a sizable tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of burnt sugar, molasses and a little bit of treacle. Sort of a rum-like component with noticable sweetness through the middle. Medium bodied with a bit of a dark component that isnít quite the typical coffee and roast. It lacks any roast or toasted components, but it isnít a terrible beer.
