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

A: A very dark color can be seen, when against light some reddish hues are clearly detected, head is brown but not too big with medium dissipation and no many traces are left behind.

S: Malty aroma, toasted barley smell with clear alcohol, fruits may also be present.

T: Flavor is pretty intense, a full malt and robust body flavor with some toasted ingredients and a strong alcohol flavor.

M: Complex sensations that starts neutral with some sweetness that rapidly changes into bittersweetness and then bitterness at the end not too hard on the mouth but present and also the alcohol sensation hits almost at the same time.
