Brown with a lasting light brown head. Malty aroma with some plum. Big sweet, fruity, malty flavour with a rich and deep malt character. My first beer at the Chris_O shindig, and a great way to start the day.

Bottled - Chris O shindig 2007 - A dark brown, almost black coloured beer with some tan pools of head. The aroma is dark fruits such as raisins, and bredy malts. It has a Belgian nose. The taste is fruity with more raisins. Lacks body but it’s drinkable enough.
