Dark brown with an amber tint. A quarter inch of beige foam is present. Brussels lacing. I smell subtle,sweet dark malt. The flavor is packed with sweet,dark malt with a nutty edge. The mouth is a bit chewy and lightly sticky.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: dark brown with thick tan head, which laced the glass the whole way down

Smell: sweet not much order

Feel: extremely smooth. Thick and foamy. High alcohol percentage but doesn't taste like it

Taste: Nice sweetness followed by toasted malt flavors. Not much hoppy flavors. Everything is balanced and easy to drink.

Dark brown, with small head. Fruity caramel smell - kind of dubbel-like. Taste has a lot of toastiness, tobacco. A little too intense and noticeably boozy.
