Pours super rich dark brown with some rich ruby highlights. Beer is nearly opaque and only a little frothy skim hangs around the surface. Watery, spitty lace hangs in strings down the walls of the glass.
Aroma is a lot lighter than expected. The malts are there and roasted to the point of practically being charred. A hint of caramelly sweetness creeps out, and the alcohol comes around more as the beer warms and smells a little like isopropyl.
This beer is one heck of a malty, boozy concoction. The malts have a split personality, presenting as sweet and caramelly while at the same time coming across as charred, roasty, and almost smoked-meaty. It borders on cloyingly sweet, which seems to be pushed along by the heat of the alcohol. Feel is pretty well carbonated, which helps lighten it overall. Finish is surprisingly dry, and it feels like some sediment remains on the tongue.
Drinkability is moderate, and pretty much expected for the style. It might be a better beer with age, but overall it's just kind of okay to me.
