Tongue coating thick sweetness. Not entirely unpleasant, but so unidimensional that I was tiring of it long before I finished.

This beer poor a dark ruby color with a nice frothy off white to beige head. Lots of lacing on this clear bodied brew. Aroma is nice with significant fruit in the nose and malt. Flavor is of dried fuit, sliglthy sweet initial flavor and yeast. Not a bad beer. Palare is also nice and substantial.
