Bottle - thanks to I forgot who :(. Pours opaque black, small fizzy black head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is roasty malts, whiskey, chocolate. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light bitter, bitter finish. Just a bit of whiskey and oak, but certainly not pronounced. Medium plus body, kinda creamy in the mouth. Good, not amazing.
