Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle. This beer has a clear, opaque brown color with reddish highlights. The white head is bubbly, big and hangs in there for a while. Good lacing. The aromas is present as soon as you pop the cork. Astringent, dark fruits and candy.
Taste is very smooth. Astringent, dark fruits and candy sugar, blended very nicely and not overpowering. This is a beer to be sipped over time. The alcohol taste is very subdued, not at all overpowering. Mouthfeel is rich and luxurious.
Drinkability is good, considering the high abv. The taste is strong enough to take notice but not overpowering or so sweet that it becomes annoying after a while. Not an everyday beer but very enjoyable.
