Bottle: Poured a hazy medium brown color ale with a medium foamy head with light retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry fruit and candi sugar with some subtle fruity ester is quite a treat. Taste is also a wonderful mix between some dry fruit such as raisin and plums with light residual sugar and some fruity ester with a solid malt backbone. Mix between sugar and malt is perfect with good full body and good carbonation. Very well brewed – additional carbonation and a bit less sugar would have improve what is already a great beer.
