Bought a 22 oz bottle and poured into my favorite pint glass.

A - Dark with somewhat purple and ruby hues to it with minimal head
S - A nice scent of licorice with fruity and nut undertones
T- A robust flavor of coffee, licorice, fruits and nuts with a very subtle bourbon cask flavor that melds them all very well.
M - It kind of feels a bit watery (but a lot of the Rahr & Sons do), sweet at first and a little bit bitter at the end.

Overall a good beer to break out of the dark beer season away from the normal like Guinness, Shiner, and the group. Nice flavor and pretty easy to drink. I've had many different beers. This one isn't my favorite but I would grab it again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark brown. Pours about a 1 finger, foamy, brown-white head. Settles quickly leaving a slight carbonated blanket. Pretty solid lacing.

S: Nose is of tea leaves, cola, and hilighted by roasted espresso.

T: Roasted espresso, pecan, and a little black licorice.

M: Thick and hearty. Robust roasted flavors in the front, with a lightly bitter and sweet finish which lingers.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, good head, and solid lacing. Nose is a very good combo of sweetness and coffee. Nutty, roasted coffee with a touch a bittersweet-ness. Overall, this is a good quaff.
