Darker amber with a thin tan-ish head. Nose fairly thin but with some malts and cream. Taste is maltish with some darker fruits and liquorice with just a hint of pepper. Overall, pretty good.

Red brown with an off-white/tan head of generous size. Sour grain (straw) aroma. Strange fruity, almost cranberry-ish undertones, with ripened plums. Silky mouthfeel, mildly sweet finish.
