Caramel, hops, citrus. One of my favorite reds. Starts smooth and gets sweeter as you go. Big and heavy drink full of flavor and life.

Bottle at home. Pours medium dark red brown with a offwhite head. Smells of apricots, caramel and pine. High bitterness, fruity. Feels like it would be better fresh in the USA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, surprised I haven’t rated this before, I know I’ve had it several times, pours a dark clear amber red with a thick off white head and lots of lacing in the glass, the aroma has quite a bit of hops and citrus at first with the caramel and grain mixed in as well, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a finish of grain and malt, not bad.
