Dark amber, copper color. Hazy and translucent without floating yeast. Head is big on the pour than recedes to a creamy blanket. Excellent retention and spots of lace.
Sweet aroma of ripe plums and crushed grapes. Hints of yeast.
Dark fruit flavors, matching the aroma, are most prominent from beginning to end. Caramel malts and corn meal are detectable in the middle. Mild hop flavor, just enough to provide an herbal, slightly medicinal bitterness and a dry character.
Medium bodied and a tad over-carbonated. Mildly grainy texture.
Good brew. Complex and tasty.
Serving type: bottle
