Pour is a dark red with a white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with a touch of chocolate. Flavor is a toffee with a bit of chocolate and the finish has a wine like quality with some vinegar coming out. Nice beer but nothing great. Would be a good starter beer for someone new to the style.

Flavors of sweet molasses, grain, and sourish caramel cola are dried a bit by some astringent and understated grassy hops. Near-medium body is fairly smooth, and has some tingle.
