A: Dark Brown almost black, opaque with amber tinge at the edge when held to the light, lots of carbonation, a finger of tan head with a slight cherry tinge.

S: Cherries, licorice, toasted malts and molasses in addition to the typical Guinness smells.

T: Toasted malts, molasses with hints of cherries and licorice, light sweetness, coffee.

M: Medium thick body with a light syrupy weight, medium carbonation.

O: Taste like a cross between a Guinness and a Belgian dubble or dark ale. More complex and sweeter than your average Guinness.

A: completely impregnable dark brown, nice creamy brown head

S: candy syrup, molasses, hints if dark chocolate and prunes

T: dark roasted nuts, hints of hops, chocolate and tobacco, some malts, even a bit candy sugar syrup

M: thinner than expected, really dry, little carbonation, some warmth

O; this isn't my favourite style but it's a pretty good beer
