Bottled: Ruby red coloured. Yeastremnants swimming around in the glass when pouring. Beige long lasting dense head. Yeast, fruit and a heavy alcahol note in the aroma. Flavour has notes of plums and prunes and the alcahol is not too well hidden. Some notes of cocoa/chocolate. Is a little vague in the end. Easy drinkable and easy forgettable beer.
