750ml bottle poured into a tulip.

Poured black, light brown head, nice lacing.

I get mostly barrel notes in the nose.

The flavor takes it up a notch, malted chocolate, cherry, oak, with some roastiness.

Very nice chocolate oaky finish.

On tap at Banger's Anniversary

Blatant diacetyl flaw, undrinkable. Nose was like I was snorting movie theater popcorn butter.
