This beer pours a rich murky amber and builds up a nice beige prickly head. It leaves some lacing on the glass, but not as much as I expected.
The smell is very aromatic and announces fruitiness and good malts.
The taste is quite remarkable and greets you with plums, prunes, some apple and raisin up front, followed by caramel ,brown sugary malts and being nicely kept in check by a great selection of hops, just the right amount. The yeast adds nice creamy feel. The alcohol is nicely hidden and will hit you at some point hard.
Very drinkable brew with good carbonation and freshness. Very good brew!
