Dark fruit aromas. Dark brown/mahogany color with a decent tan head. At least medium body with very fine carbonation. A bit vinous - almost like grape and plum, with smoothly roasted malt. Slightly sweet, a bit of nuttiness, and arguably floral hop. It’s really quite delicious.

Sweet molasses smell and taste, with no hops anywhere. Pretty dark brown. Not to my taste, but probably a quality Mild Ale.

Sample at AleFest Dayton: Dark brown color with a nil off-white head and very little lacing. Aroma of molasses and sweet malt.
