Ruby beer, creamy and lacy head. Malty sweet nose, a hint of molasses, dark dried fruits and light roast. Light herbal hoppiness. Dryish and slightly thin malt flavor, dark sugar, slightly acidic yeastiness and medium bitter finish with some nutty and roasted bread aromas. Slightly glueish. Sugar makes it a bit thin. Quite smooth. Boring.
