Bottle pours dark brown with lighter mahogany edges, thin beige head. Aroma of bready malts, some dark fruit, some light citrus, wood. Taste is much better than the regular Fat, it’s doesn’t seem as sweet because of the slight woody bitterness. There is a light roast character to this, but it’s mostly sweet dark fruit and malt. Great texture, full yet soft carbonation. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2012
