The beer pours a lightly hazed dark brown, with just a touch of ruby. There is a short head of light tan foam. The aroma is malty, with lots of caramel and dark fruits, plum and raisins, with a bit of a fruity and yeasty tang. The taste follows the aromas, sweet yet tangy, caramel and dark fruits, with a bit of a light red wine note. The finish is dry despite the sweet tones. The beer drinks very smooth with a tingling of carbonation. This is very well done, and tasty.
