It’s dark brown with a red hue, and a terribly lively head, the foam keeps growing out of the bottle even after a large glass is poured, and the mouth feel is very carbonated, not in the pleasant way. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, burnt sugar and light fruit and nuts. The flavor has a light to moderate sweetness and notes of burnt sugar, chocolate, roasted malt, fruits and a hint of nuts, and the finish is slightly dry and bitter.
