Deep brown with a red tint and a fully lasting, lacy, lasting, thin, frothy off-white head. Smells of plums, figs, nuts, raisins, cinnamon, deep dark malt and deep roasted caramel. Rather complex but a bit boozy. Medium to full body. Salty taste of nuts with an initial hint of alcohol, sweet malt and caramel with a dry roasty raisin rather fruity finish. plum?
