A dark beer with hints of purple, this has a strong malty aroma. Flavours are very sweet toffee with berry fruit. Quite a dry finish that is not long or bitter enough. Still, not bad.

I have never seen more information about a beer's properties on a label. There was info on its ingredients, allergy advice, nutrition, a warning about its bottle pressure, alcohol advice, packaging (glass, steel cap, and paper), and chilling advice! There is even braille on the label.
Not a bad beer. Poured a clear brownish amber with a tiny short lived head. A bit of malt and sugar in the aroma. The sugar and malt gave it a nice sweetness that was balanced by light hops. Moderate mouthfeel and light carbonation.
