Poured into pint glass from bottle. Very dark, almost black. Like soda. A strong aroma and taste. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Sticks on the tongue for a bit. Kind of a earthy flavor. Very low carbonation. Overall it is a pretty good beer. Will try again.

Poured into a 12 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a dark brown, with a quarter inch of white head, minimal lace. Smell is toffee, biscuit, fig, and molasses. Taste is similar, toffee and biscuit in the beginning and fig in the finish, with some caramel. Body is almost medium, could use a little more carbonation, not overly dry, and drinks easy enough. This is solid for the style.

Bottle -> Wine Glass

A: Slightly hazy dark coffee brown with a slight orange hue, 1/4" tan head, spotty lacing.
S: Milk chocolate, cloves, toasted malts, bourbon whiskey, vanilla, coffee, earthy.
T: Smokey/earthy, toasty, definitely English style with slight hops, slight bitterness.
M: Nice medium body, good CO2, nice lingering flavor and bitterness.
O: Tasty beer. A lot darker than expected. Interesting earthy/woody flavor that lingers with a back of the tongue finish.
