The beer pours a dark chestnut brown and ruby. There is about a half-inch of light tan foam. The aroma is brown sugar, caramel, and some yeasty fruity esters. The taste follows the aromas, sweet, fruity, with some roasted notes too. There is a definite presence and warmth from the alcohol. It has a full, but not heavy, and smooth mouthfeel, with a background tingle of carbonation. Mellow, jazzy, reflective.
