Poured into a goblet. Color was a darker amber brown, with a light brown 1 finger head. Aroma was a molasses brown sugar sweet, very small hint of cola flavor in the background. Flavor was sweet up front, but then shifted to a bit of sour flavoring. Very tail end of the flavor was a bit of sweet brown bread. Coated well with a nice bit of carbonation. Overall, not a terrible beer, but the sour notes were off-putting.
