Served @ 50F in a goblet.
Pours with a lacy white head. Clear, rich mahogany color. Aroma is mainly roasted malt and molasses, not overpowering. Taste is rich, roasted, and caramelly, with a lingering sweetness and alcoholic warmth (although only 5.6% abv). Creamy mouthfeel, slight bitterness on finish. Medium carbonation. A well-balanced ale, somewhat like a lighter-bodied Baltic porter.
