From the bottle the pour is dark brown with and as light passes through a little red. The head is light brown, thick and lingures. The aroma is cream notes of toffee and coffee. The taste is roasted, slightly smoked. Quickly brightens with the hops and finished roasted and bitter. Overall impression is the beer is dark but a good balance of hops that make it feel less heavy but a solid brown.
