Clear red - brown beer. Very soft palate. Sweet creamy buttery toffee and caramel. Some tangy sweet fruit coming through before the end which is soft and creamy with a trace of more bittering toffee. Enjoyed this but really quite sweet. A dessert beer?

Amber color, of a very dark shade; medium-sized compact head. It has a very nice aroma, of malt toffee and vanilla oak, more wood; mild. Soft and round body; there is a very good caramel and toffee flavor, with harmonious vanilla and oak, making it a bit buttery. Good bitterness, but not covering the malt profile. Excellent.
