Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Palate is smooth and airy. Little dry. Mild minerals. Touch of aniseed but otherwise the alcohol is well hidden. Light toffee malt cream. Dried fruits. Mild spice and a touch of sherry. Finishes crisp. Interesting beer, was expecting heavy and sweet but this is light and crisp!
