Dark brown color, almost no carbonation and no head. Excellent aroma, strong, with chocolate, wood, a bit vinous as well and light sweat. Good body, not too oily, with strong flavor of dark malts, wood, some chocolate, rather dry; the ice concentration has improved/increased the funky BFM character; there is a trace if acetone. Complex, powerful, very interesting
