Appearance: Very dark red-brown. A small off-white head quickly fades to a small ring of lace.

Smell: Caramelized malt. Pretty faint.

Taste: Sweet up front with caramel and malt, followed by slight bitterness. After this some alcohol warmth appears along with a woody aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation hits the tongue up front, followed by a smooth, thick body.

Overall: Solid and hearty. If you like caramel, try it!

Pours a dark brown to black color with ruby highlights, and a two finger foamy head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has caramel malt, peat, roasted malt, and some dark fruit.

Has a sweet taste from the caramel malt, with some bitterness from the roasted malt for balance. There is also peat, a little dark fruit, some smoke, and toasted malt.

Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Has a caramel and peat aftertaste. Very nicely made, and well worth trying again.
