From a bottle. Pours dark hazy brown with a very fizzy beige head. Looked and sounded like pouring a coke. Tastes like raisins, dry carbonation, slightly sweet, slight caramel. Nice and light feel but strong alcohol. Smells like dry raisins, slightly nutty and sweet. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2014
