650ml bottle from Beer Bazaar in Hainesville, cellar aged 2 months. Pours a very, very dark brown pour with a brown head into my Only Child funky glass, with bits of spotty lace. Aroma has big molasses, some toffee, light espresso, and some spices. Taste is of sweet molasses, roasted malt, light cocoa, a touch of roast and some pepper. Stronger than medium bodied with some alcohol. The blend is solid and the carbonation is soft. Finishes sweeter than bittersweet. Interesting, solid representation of style. Enjoyable. 13.6
