Dark brown with shades of a deep rich red around the edges of my SA Perfect Pint. Agressive pour leaves a two finger off white head that tops off above the rim of the glass. The head is very rich and creamy, to me one of the best components of this brew. The retention is also above average. It's clear and with a good amount of carbonation.
Intially there were some strong aromas pouring out of the glass but as the head settled the aromas were hard to bring back. I'm picking up roasted malts and caramel.
First tasting a bit of rye, which was pleasant. Not as strong as rye bread but still detectable. I also taste raisins and caramel sweetness which is nice following the roast and rye notes. There is a nice balance between the two.
The beer is medium bodied and very smooth with a nice crisp finish.
Overall this is a very tasty brown ale. There are lots of flavors and I really enjoy the smoothness of it as well. It pretty to look at but for me lacked in the aroma department. I would buy this again.
