Muddy, neutral brown color. No head except for a ring of beige bubbles on the edge. No lace whatsoever.

Sweet aroma of chocolate and caramel. No hop.

In a word: Cloy. One of the sweetest beers I've ever had. Plenty of caramel (from dark crystal malt?) and some chocolate (from, presumably, chocolate malt). Super. Body, particularly for the style. Low carbonation. The aftertaste is sugary with some alcohol warmth on the back of the tongue.
