750mL bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dark fruits, spices, and somewhat sweet candied sugar. Flavour is lightly spicy, with dry dark fruits and bready malt. Lively carbonation, with medium sweetness and decent dryness. Okay beer - overrated. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
