Pours the color of walnut wood, dark and clear but when held to the light it's actually maroon. A small head of beige foam that fell fast and leaves fine wet lace that falls very fast. Thin ring. Head refreshes slightly upon a tilt of the glass. Nose is toasted malt, deep toffee, brown sugar, cherry and earthy with a touch of alcohol. No hops on the nose at all. Taste is smooth and a little buttery, slightly thick and sticky. It travels the palate slowly and the malt is dark and toffee like. Leaves a faint trace of hop bitter on the mid palate but finishes cloying with a coating of sugar sweetness on the back palate. Has a roasty, dry, earthy peat quality overall but I wish there was more of that. Carbonation is small bubbles that keep the palate bright but it still drinks very heavy. There is just a hint of chocolate on the palate.

This was a very sweet beer that was grainy, fairly dry, and lightly fruity. It's not my favorite style and you could definitely call it a "wee bit heavy."
