A- dark brown, nearly black body, one finger brown head with minimal retention, some lacing.
S- Fairly odd but distinct fruit sweetness, nuttiness, a bit of chocolate malt. Though there is still something off about the nuttiness, as if it's stale, oxidized peanut butter rather than the crisp smell of a freshly opened peanut butter jar. It's not bad, but certainly not very promising.
F- Not good. It's somewhat difficult to describe. The nuttiness is here, but like in the nose, there is clearly something wrong with it; likely it has gotten very stale. There is some sort of rotten fruit sweetness that clashes with the stale nuttiness. The only thing left is some milk chocolate and coffee from the base malt, but it's all still very muddled by the other adjuncts. It's not a very enjoyable flavour profile at all.
M- Thinner bodied, OK carbonation, but simply just not a beer I want to ever drink again.
O- It's been in the fridge the entire time, but I have a feeling that this beer was still not going to be particularly drinkable fresh. The flavours clash completely and absolutely fall apart when it gets warmer.

This is a solidly black beer, capped with a light brown frothy head. The head is long-lived and dense. The aroma is rich...full with roasted grain, a touch of malt, and lots of roasty, burned, and intense notes. There is also a hint of alcohol and peanut...I didn't smell it at first, but it grows through the beer. The taste is balanced, with some alcohol warming. The berries come out more in the taste and are not really present in the smell. Full body.
