Comes out brown with a ruby dark red to the edge of the glass making a soft off white head 2/3" deep. Aroma didn't drop much on me.

Taste was a smoky malt lager, brown malt, hot rocks make a sticky viscosity and coating when you drink it. I don't see myself going back to this one beyond this one tick, but its a decently priced bomber and unique beer.

Pours three fingers of tan head on a dark brown-red colored body.
The aroma has roasted malt and a little cocoa power. Nice.
The taste is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate and a little cream.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
Excellent flavors and smell.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty brown with a medium lasting beige head. Aroma and taste is sweet dark caramel malt and grains, some mild dark fruit notes and yeast with light bitterness. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. The finish is dark malted grains and caramel, some toasted malt and yeast, with mild dark fruit flavor and soft bitterness on the end for balance. A very good caramel malt character. Overall this is a well balanced, tasty and enjoyable brew any time, very good brew.
