Nice aroma of caramel, spices and red fruits. Flavor is distinctly malty with some slight roasted coffee and bready flavors to it. Some slight dried fruits as well, but the dryness of the beer makes it taste more like something herbal. Finish is spicy and perfectly dry.

Bottle at home. Has a clear, reddish brown colour with an ivory head. Sweet aroma of caramel, dried fruit, dark berries and sweet cake. The flavour has more roasted malt, leather, wood and some ash. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A nice bitter with a sweet aroma and a nice roasted taste.
