Out of the bottle, poured light brown, cloudy, with a big rocky persistent tan head. Absolutely beautful in the glass. Malt forward notes of brown raisin bread, molasses, along with fig, cinnamon, and chocolate covered cherries. Rich and complex. Sublime. Loved it.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red color with a thick tan head. Aroma is of honey, raisins, yeast and some spice. Full body, lots of carbonation, the taste has a sweet characteristic along with some dried fruit and yeast. Finish is a little dry and just a slight tartness on the sides of the tongue after the swallow. Excellent!
