The color reminds me a bit of a class of cola, looks black at first, but is actually more a dark brown with a reddish tinge on the edges. Has a small tan head that quickly turns into some lacing.

Starts out sweet, like a toffee or caramel. There's also a bit of coffee and chocolate.

Tastes a lot like it smells, bit of sweetness up front like caramel. There's chocolate and coffee as well, and maybe some cherry. Kind of reminds me of the flavor of cherry and chocolate blended together.

Goes down fairly smooth, but a bit thin for the style.

Not a bad beer, goes down easy, and the alcohol is well hidden. The one thing I would like is more complexity, it could use more depth of flavor. Still, it is an easy beer to drink, and has enough flavor to make me glad I gave it a try.

Poured cold form a bottle.

This beer was a very dark brown colour with a tan head that disappeared quickly. There was not much of a smell... slightly sweet and malty, but barely noticeable. The taste was sweet and matly with a very faint roasted finish; not much to it.

Would I buy it again? No.
