Bright dark brown. Figs, molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. The body is light, and a bit watery in the finish. Flavours of light molasses, graham crackers and slightly sticky sugariness. Decent balance.

Rich, "warm", dark/caramel malt aroma. Nice brown color that turns reddish mahogany using halogen. The beige head went up well, but down fast. Medium in body and rather creamy in carbonation. There are medium dark roasted malt tastes, some nuttiness, and arguably a bit of grassy hop. Maybe a chocolate lilt. Just grabs the mouth. The finish is slightly earthy, not all that sweet considering the malt is there, and there is still a light bitter. A pleasant sort of neutral finish. HB does seem to make good beer.
