This beer pours out a dark brown, with very little off white head, and even this little bit dissipates rather quickly. Lots of malt and caramel scents come off of this beer, as well as just a hint of alcohol which, fortunately, stays mostly in the background. This beer tastes very malty and to a lesser degree has some caramel flavor to it. The mouthfeel for this one is pretty good, not as heavy as you'd expect from a beer at this ABV, but I wouldn't call it thin by a long shot. The main reason I think this beer suffers is because its high ABV impairs its drinkability somewhat. While tasty, this isn't a beer you're going to sit down and drink through a six pack.
