UPDATED: AUG 16, 2020 Old notes from Nov 2014 - I've had this in my beer inbox for quite a while.. poured a brown caramel colour with a light brown small head. Aromas of caramel. Tastes of caramel, roasted nut & slight spice. There is lacings left on the edge of the glass the more you drink, which is fairly quickly because I'm really enjoying this!
