Pours a dark copper color with a skim head which gives way to just edging. When you hold the beer to the light the color is revealed as a ruby red color with visible carbonation. The aroma is of dark fruits and of a slight chocolate along with some caramel malt. The taste has a caramel malt backbone with a big chocolate taste in the middle of the the beer, there is then a pear bite of flavor on the backend to finish out the beer. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall it was a very good beer, it was a good taste and had a nice aroma.
