The beer pours dark brown and ruby in color. There is a short and short-lived head of light tan foam. The aroma is darkened sugar, dark fruits, raisins, grapes, sweet, yet tangy, a light vinous note. The taste follows the aromas, adding in caramel. The beer is rich, and sweet, yet the finish is dry. The beer drinks smooth, with a background tingling of carbonation. It is a bit spicy on the finish, adding in an alcohol warmth.
