The beer was hazy brown with a creamy head. The aroma was roasty with a style-appropriate aroma of alcohol. The flavor is of roasted grain and it finished with a surprising sweetness. There was no hop bitterness, all the bitter was created by the great roasted malt profile. For drinkability, this was a 10% abv, and it was very drinkable, you didn't get a taste of that alcohol that you know and can smell is there.

Pours an opaque deep brown with a frothy, lingering khaki head.
Notes of treacle and toffee erupt from the glass, with dates and prunes adding complexity. Rum soaked raisins come to mind, along with a slightly savory, not quite soy character.
Flavor reveals brown sugar and caramel malt serving as the backbone, becoming nutty and toffee like in the slightly sweet finish. Underlying notes of muted prunes, raisins, and dates are welcome distractions from what could be slightly cloying malt sweetness. Cola characteristics emerge late.
Body is on the full side, with modest carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
Nice malt character, with a decent amount of estery complexity. Some may think this to be too sweet, but I enjoy it.
