look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip. Nice chunky head. Looks dark brown almost black. Smells like coffee, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt, wood fire. Medium body, low carbonation, tastes like burnt candy, bitter chocolate, brandy-like, a little like Guinness but better. A lingering coffee finish. Powerful dark flavors that shadow the alcohol. I would drink it for breakfast if it wasn’t so strong
