Cola brown coloring. Nice malty aroma. Malty with a good balance of hoppy sweetness. Milt boozy finish. Very nice.

a: its a mix of dark dark purple and dark ruby red. only a hint of brown in the center of the glass. 2 finger white solid head

s: sweet caramel malts, raisins, plums, a nice toasted chestnut aroma. nose finishes with a nice clove spice and a hint of grass. a little alcohol in here as well

t: there is a much bigger roasted malt in the flavor than i picked up on in the aroma. also a nice amount of chocolate - milk & bittersweet. there is just the slightest hint of plums, which is a nice addition. all the rounded out and by a nice mellow chestnuty flavor. as in the nose, the very faintest hint of alcohol. there is some bitterness and astringency at the back of the tongue which lingers a little bit - i could do without this

m: its a creamy medium mouthfeel. not much carbonation, but not flat

o: liked this more than i expected to. i enjoy the chestnut flavors i'm perceiving in here. my biggest problem is the lingering bitterness and astringency at the back of the tongue that i didn't really taste until the aftertaste. still though, worth a try
