Clean dark amber color, with medium sized head. Light aroma of malt and caramel. Smooth and round mouthfeel, medium body strength; it has some caramel and malt flavor, with a light nutty touch, moderate sweetness, and correct bitterness.
Strong beer, not enough malty to be considered a Barley Wine.
