Clear dark mahogany, bit ruby, practically no head and minimal lacing just foggy residues. Medium strong aroma is sweet and malty, dark bread, suryp, nuts, raisins, some wood notes. Light, bit watery, medium carbonation, semidry, medium long finish is malty and dries bit. Just ok, bit thin in body and soul.
