Light, drinkable, but definitely too sweet.

Lovely black with large-bubble persistent head. Brisk mouthfeel with solid malt, good effervescence and modest hoppy finish. This is a nice beerfor many occasions. Best as a dessert beer, but it could accompany roast beef, pork tenderloin, or even barbequed ribs. A good well- rounded brew.
