A - Pours with one finger of light brown foam that dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. The body is very dark brown with a hint of red showing through when held up to the light.

S - light coffee aromas with some toffee and toasted malt.

T - Dry caramel and brown sugar flavored malt notes up front. Darker caramel comes out in the middle with a hint of molasses. The beer finishes with notes of cola and more molasses as well as a lingering note of smoky coffee.

M - Moderately thick body, medium carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - I was skeptical that this would be significantly different from the normal version, but there are some subtle changes. The body seems a bit more oily than the standard 1901, and the flavors seem a more rounded as well. An interesting change of pace, but I still prefer the original.
