Dark brown w/ crimson hues at the light. A voluminous tan head breaks apart slowly.

Puts forth an herbal aroma with caramel following and a hint of dark chocolate.

Has a creamier and lighter than expected body. Tastes like a roasted marshmallow and chocolate campfire treat with a piney hop bonus at the end. I'm all for dessert before dinner. Some nutty, metallic notes are noticed as it warms.

A little of everything I like in an ABA, and in reverse order to boot.
