Amber in color with an off-white head. Sweet malty nose of toast, bread, and toffee. Some hints of grape, a light chocolate aroma, and maybe some prune. Also a light roastiness. Pretty nice malty flavor. Good toffee, toast, and bread. Mild chocolate, dark fruit, cola, and grapes. A very light floral and earthy hop character, too.
