From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 6, 2014.

The pour is a handsome chestnut or mahogany brown with a tremendous off-white head that stays around. Nice clarity.

The nose is full of toasted malts or a more apt description would be burnt malts. Sweetness. Molasses maybe.

Medium to full body.

The malts are the big part of the taste too with a low nearly invisible bitterness balancing things out at the finish. Sweet throughout.
