A big thanks to Nick for the kind gift.

Poured an almost pitch black cloud color with 2-to-3 fingers of tan head that dissipated almost immediately. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention all the way down.

Smelled a mix of a lot of different flavors. Got coconut, crayon, toast, wood, vanilla, rum, dark chocolate, caramel, toffee (a bit like Rolo’s candy), Cherry Coke and some more rum.

Tasted much better than the smell. Got chocolate, dark chocolate, wood, smooth rum, dry coconut, crayon, almost burnt toast, Rolo’s candy, caramel and toffee.

Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish. Tastes strong, but not 17.09 percent strong.

After starting off fairly weak, this beer really came on. I enjoyed it very much. Would love to get my hands on it again.
