750 ml bottle. Aroma of medium dark fruit and caramel. Brilliant ruby color with a decent tan head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Starts with a bit of heat, followed by dark berry, strong caramel, and some bitter at all points. It’s got a spicy fresh impression. It’s dry and sweet all at once. Perhaps a bit woody in the end. The bottle claims to be full of sumptious, exciting contrasts. Right on. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2006
