Bottle. Pours ruby dark red in color with a small whitish head. Bit of dark malts, sweetness and ripe dark fruits. There’s some part that’s almost like a mix between butterscotch and nuttyness with additional hints of brown sugar. Dark syrup, some nuttyness and dark fruits in taste. Sweet and dark bready finish with a little warming effect too. Enjoy this one just slightly chilled. Good as a winter warmer, even if the sweetness is almost too much from to time. The nuttyness and bready malty notes saves alot though here. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2014
