Pours a reddish amber color with pollowy white head. There is some lace clusters.

The nose has some sweet fruity pebbles scents with a bit of cocoa and nutty malt.

The taste has a bit of fruity hops but the malt is dominent. There is a cocoa taste that hits the palate as the hops fade and it is quite tasty in the mix.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice amount of carb.

Pretty solid brew.
