Pours dark mahagony, nice foamy fead, stays for a bit. Aroma is softly roasty, has some hops and dark fruits, light. Taste has also roast but also soft fruitiness. Roast lingers for long. Medium body, nice and does not feel too strong.Hoppy lingering aftertaste. Great beer, has even more that it’s abv seems to allow.
