Pours - Jet black nice thick tan head that eventually dissipates to a light ring around the glass some lacing.

Smell - Lots of roasted malt and coffee, very sweet smelling, some chocolate as well. The alcohol is present in the smell.

Taste - Very sweet dark chocolate, I was not sure how the Brazilian cane sugar would taste in this but it is not too sweet. Roasted malts little coffee flavor as well. The alcohol is present but not over whelming.

Feel - Full body, coats the mouth little warmth from the alcohol.

Overall - This is a really good beer, I like the taste it is sweet but not too sweet, nice that the alcohol is not overpowering.

600 ml bottle with a production date that I can't decipher.

Pours a near pitch black with an inch of tan foam. Minimal lacing.

The smell is fruity, roasty, very sweet from the malt and cane sugar. I can't not mention how up in my nose the alcohol is.

Roasted malt, chocolate, sugary sweet malt, hints of licorice in the taste along with a strong alcohol presence. Something tells me that this isn't the freshest bottle out there but perhaps that's a good thing.

Full bodied with medium carbonation.

Despite the strong alcohol notes, I'm enjoying the slow sips that I am taking.
