pours dark brown with zero head. looks cloudy. aroma is dark fruits and chocolate with a hint of alcohol. very nice malt character but a bit high on the booziness factor. like drinking a fine wine. taste gets better as it warms. delicious brew.

Cloudy, dark brown appearance. Frothy head that collapses into a thick, bubbley collar. Aroma consist of tart cherries, milk chocolate, alcohol, and vanilla. Body is thin. Tart tasting. Alcohol is not as strong as i expected. Average carbonation. Finish is thin and long and leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Leaving a warm sensation in my body. I will drink this slowly because you can tell this beer will sneak up on you later.

Aroma: fruits, caramel. Dark brown liquid with beige head, stays. Taste is coca-cola with resins and banana, also some candy sugar. Alcohol is well hidden, malts aswell. Pretty surprising beer I would say. Banana dominates over malts :) Very interesting.
