I actually really enjoyed the taste of this one. My biggest complaint is (my bottle at least) has very little carbonation,almost completely flat. Booooo!

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but when held up to a bright light the beer is clear and very dark red in color with a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a short beige head that quickly died down, leaving a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of burnt malts and molasses are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of burnt and roasted malts along with notes of molasses. There is a slight amount of bitterness and the flavors of molasses linger into the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Considering its strength, this beer is quite drinkable as any traces of alcohol are very well hidden from the taste.
