The beer pours dark brown, with a bit of ruby, looking like a cola, right down the heavy carbonation on the sides of the glass and the short tan head. The aroma is malty, roasted, sweet, fruity, tangy, nutty. The taste is even more roasted, nutty, almost a hint of smoke. The beer drinks very easy, with a tingle of carbonation. The finish is dry. The flavors here are great, I wish the body was just a bit heavier and smoother.
