330ml bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is hazy iced tea brown with red highlights. One finger head quickly fades to a ring. Bit of a bubble show with sediment resting on the bottom. Aroma is raisin, vanilla, fig, alcohol, light molasses, and grains. Taste is sweet malt and yeast with mild clove phenol, pumpernickel bread, brown sugar, and fig. Alcohol is prominent with fruit and spice notes. Medium-plus body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, spicy and sweet finish.
