A- Absolutely pitch black with only the slightest bit of light getting through at the edges. The head is very thick, creamy, and brown. Looks like serious business.

S- Cocoa powder, alcohol, malted milk powder, earthy, and just the slightest hint of cinnamon and a distinct nuttiness. This is just not appealing at all...

T- More appealing than the aroma, but still a distinct flavor that I do not like and have a bit of trouble placing- it's almost like melted plastic... Some chocolate, alcohol, nuttiness. Not a lot of depth.

M- A nice amount of carbonation and it is pretty smooth, but the aftertaste is just not nice. Pretty dry.

D- Well, this was just a disappointment. This is just not very good. I wish I knew what the ABV was so I knew what to do with this.
