12 ounce bottle -> snifter glass

A - tarnished copper color, with fluffy two finger head, awesome retention, and awesome lacing.
S - Kind of a burnt smell, nutty, and some alcohol
T- complex, malty brown sugar upfront with a dry charred boozy flavor on the finish
M - kind of a bitter aftertaste
O- not my cup of tea, but fairly complex flavor.

12oz bottle-dangerously delicious.. copper color with a sweetness that hides the higher alcohol content although you get the alcohol in the aftertaste that lingers until the next sip. Tastes like honey molasses malt and hops. A must have in the cellar
