Look: Dark brown to black with light beige lacing, minimal head that disappeared quickly

Smell: Alcohol, dark malt, some dark fruits

Taste: Roasted chocolate and coffee malt, alcohol present, oak tannins and a nice sweet aftertaste

Feel: Thick, foamy, creamy

Overall: Pretty good, perhaps a bit overpowering on the alcohol taste but good nonetheless.

highly disappointed with this brew. Drank two bottles of the 4 pack, gave the other two away. Tasted like a rum and coke, and the coke was flat.
