The beer pours a lightly hazed dark amber to medium brown in color. There is over an inch of thick, creamy, foamy, off-white head. The aroma is malty, caramel, raisins, and straw in a barn. The taste follows the aromas, pleasantly malty, caramel, dark fruits, straw, with a moderately bitter finish that is also dry. The beer drinks easy and smooth with a soft tingle of carbonation.
