It pours pitch black with a cola rim. Razor thin beige head with poor retention. It appears lifeless.

A- Aromas of coffee, plum, cherry, chocolate, molasses, and lightly burnt toast. Really complex, rather enjoyable.

T- Tastes of herbal hops and dark coffee. Bitter finish. The alcohol is hidden well. Leaves a burnt taste is the the mouth.

M- Surprisingly light. Low carbonation.

O- the aroma was definitely the most impressive aspect of this brew. Lackluster appearance and mouth feel hurt the overall score.
