I would have called this an ESA, but that’s just me. Nose is full of dark fruits, a bit of candy sweetness, and the roasted maltiness that will soon envelop your palate. Lots of dark plums and raisins notes, some brown sugar and roasted coffee and caramel. Some spice and hops coming through in the finish. Absolutely lovely!

On draft at the Amnesia pub. The flavor and palate came across as somewhat watery and weak; an attempt to be an interesting beer but I just wasn’t getting it.
