UPDATED: NOV 12, 2003 Yeah, it has dark amber colour with hints of ruby. Beautiful big, long-lasting and creamy off-white head. Hoppy, fruity and slightly spicy aroma with hints of caramel and nuts. Smooth choclate flavour. Spices, coffee, caramel and some roasted notes. Finish is dominated by earthy hops, which is balanced with some malty creamy caramel notes. Great!
