Poured from the 12oz bottle into a shaker glass. Dark brown nearly black pour with a tan head. Aroma is sweet and caramely with some nuttiness and light roast. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma implies - mildly roasty with some nice nuttiness. Medium bodied. Not super complex but a very drinkable brown.
