Intro: A 330ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date and poured into a wine glass.
Appearance: It poured a dark brown colour with a one finger beige head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Caramel, chocolate and coke.
Taste: Sweet-ish malts, roasty coffee and bittersweet chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with quite a lot of carbonation.
Overall: Seemed a bit over-carbonated, almost like drinking soda. Taste was ok but quite straight forward.
