Mahogany brown in color with a moderate amount of carbonation bubbles. A fingernail of khaki head surrounds the rim and forms a circle in the middle of the chalice. Aroma is of dates, chestnuts, and dark candy sugar. The taste is dark malt and dark candy sugar. The mouth is moderately carbonated and that in turn prickles your tongue, it is also dry and warming to your throat.
