Off-white level foam, copper body, excellent clarity.

Aroma has a truck load of caramel. Some candy sugar.

Huge sweet malt foundation. A produce department of fruit. Bitter snap at swallow, that grows exponentially in the afterglow.

Smooth, slick, thick mouthfeel.

Not the equal of Ruination, but following in its footsteps. I could have this again.
