Dark reddish brown color with a thin veil of surface skim. Malty aroma with some caramel, vanilla and bourbon/rum heat.
Harshly astringent taste with a strangely artificial plastic off note. Pretty boozy, and not as balanced as Black Breath.
Overall this was a disappointment, two of us couldn't even finish half the bottle unfortunately.
