650ml bottle poured into my Narke glass...A lightly carbonated dark brown beer, no lacing, not much to look at...A really light aroma of molasses and dark fruits, but boring, too much alcohol, and a vomit finish...The taste is equally sucky, alcohol, burning and vomit.
This is worth skipping.

Bottle. Pours a black body with an off white head. Malty molasses sweetness, light chocolate, caramel and toffee. Modest warming with a lightly roast y and bitter bite to the end. Still the etoh ending warmed the drying bitterness quite a bit. Good overall. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours dark with one finger creamy tan head. Nose is mildly roasty with some coffee. Flavor is a tad bitter and shows some coffee roast. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2011
This poured a medium to dark brown color with a smaller beige head. Aroma was light roast, lots of milk chocolate, and some dark fruit. Flavor was very smooth and chocolatey, not overly roasted at all. A nice ASA and a pleasant surprise. SudsMcDuff (8469) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2011

Bottle shared at Paul and Ryan’s 5000th celebration. Poured a cloudy light brown with a yellowish brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grains with a bit of chocolate, roasted malts and dark fruits. Flavor began with dark grains with a bit of sweet chocolate and toffee coming out.
