Bottle courtesy of johnyb, thanks again!

Pours a dark brown color with a nice rocky tan head. Kind of surprised when I poured it, was expecting a more lighter gold color.

Aromas are of cocoa, earthiness, and light cedar.

Taste is certainly unique. Light nuttiness, sweet honey, cola, crisp and clean with a mineral like bite on the finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, light body.

Overall? Definitely an odd duck. Well worth trying, but dang getting through this whole bottle is going to take some time.
