550ml Bottle from Party Source in Syracuse

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a large size fizzy light brown head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, roasted/toasted nuts, currants/raisins, metallic

Taste & Mouth - There is a low amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and caramel/toffee. There are also notes of dark fruits - currants or raisins and a bit of a smokiness. It ends with a malty roasted aftertaste.

Overall - This beer is very drinkable and has lots of flavours going on, but none of them very potent or cloying. Worth trying and I'd have it again anytime.

550ml bottle into tulip pint.

Pours a very dark brown, near black with dark ruby-hued brown edges when held to the light. A creamy, foamy light tan head.

The aroma is of lightly roasted malts, with some toffee and nuttiness.

The and some toffee and nut in the finish.

A light to medium body with average carbonation.

Fairly average in all categories, but a good beer overall nonetheless.
