The beer pours a deep, dark amber, with red and brown tints. There is a relatively short head of tan foam. The aroma is malty, roasted, sweet, fruity, caramel, orange, with a bit of pine or dankness. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, adding in strong tea. It is sweet, yet with a dry and bitter finish. The beer drinks smooth and round. This is very enjoyable, tasty and refreshing.
