Pleasant aroma, dark and interesting malts with some spices, dark fruits. Chewy caramels with some chocolates and spices thrown in for the fun of it. It sends some old ale/schotch ale influences. Exciting.

Deep brown tot black body. Off-white creamy head. Light caramel nose, with hops. Not what I expected judging from the looks. Moderately sweet, grapes, yet slightly bitter. Decent, but somewhat odd.
