355ml bottle. Oversized glass. Enjoyed on feb´12. Pours dark amber in color, ruby to the light. Thin, quickly dissipated head, tan color. Toasted malts, caramel malts & sugar to the nose. Sparkling chocolate, dry bitterness, dark fruits & intense maltiness compound the flavor profile. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Dry astringent finish. Plum touch on the aftertaste. Easy drinkability.
