Seems like it'd be so good. Looked so awesome and smelled amazing, but it just wasn't lol.

Not sure how old this bottle was, with cryptic bottle dating that I refuse to fight to decipher.

Appearance: Nearly black, with a limited head that dissipates immediately. No lace at all.

Aroma: Cocoa and some burnt malts.

Taste: Like a cola minus the fizz. Older bottle? Who knows. Awful beer? Pretty sure. Cola-like flavoring — cocoa and vanilla, but kinda artificial. Finishes light and with only the lingering flavor of medicinal cola. No, thanks.

Ordered a Guiness and received this by mistake.

No head or apparent carbonation. Dark brown in color.

Artificial aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and tons of sugar on the nose.

Taste is sugar and more sugar to the point of nauseation. There is some vanilla in there too.

The body is thin and medium to light with a watery finish.

Very reminiscent of a flat bourbon and coke. Not good.
