A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a three-finger thick, nicely browned, darkish tan colored head. The beer is pretty black in color, but does show some clear, ruby highlights when held up directly to the light. The aroma is pretty interesting, it definitely smells a bit like coconut, but really has a significant vanilla note as well as a backdrop of spicy bourbon-like aromatics. Actually it even smells a bit like tequila towards the finish. The aroma definitely smells a bit charred, with a sour roast note and a burnt vegetal note that lightly spices the nose. The aroma is more interesting than it is actually good, though it is not bad.

The flavor has a light sweetness to it up front that picks up a touch more sweetness towards the middle and finish, but never gets really sweet (the vanilla notes seem to add to the perceived sweetness more than anything). The finish is just plain weird; really it is just weird and I have a hard time figuring out how to describe it, sort of vegetal, a bit burnt and acrid, vanilla gone wrong, a mix of the worst qualities of tequila and bourbon, perhaps some plastic like phenolics, badly roasted coffee. Blech, this makes my tongue flinch, I don’t know what has gone wrong here, but something has gone terribly wrong. It is so bad and so unfamiliar that I don’t even think it is an infection. The texture isn’t too bad as it has a certain fullness to it, though it is a bit on the light side.

Wow, definitely an experience, but certainly not a good one. I am really curious what exactly has gone wrong here.
