I picked it up in a 22 and did not pour it into a glass, but it appeared to be a dark brown color inside the bottle, so I would not say it is too dark colored.

You can smell the malts and molasses, as well as a citrusy note.

It tastes a little less sweet than it smells. You can taste malts, coffee, caramel, and chocolate, which is balanced nicely with a strong citric hops flavor.

It goes down very smoothly. It's somewhat thick, and moderately carbonated.

Overall, this is a fantastic offering, and is quite possibly my favorite brew ever. I recommend it with grapefruits or oranges.

Poured into my trusty pint glass from bottle. Kind of a brownish hue with decent head. Tastes of toffee and chocolate and the smell is the same as it tastes. Strong enough to have a couple of these at a time though. Smooth tasting a great filling!!!!
