Poured a brownish red body with one finger head and minimal lace, with a rather malt heavy aroma as one picks up some booze and roasted malts as well as dark fruits like figs. The body is thicker, a slow sipper, a tad bit of alcohol, has some minor caramel/toffee like sweetness, just a touch of dry hops. The balance is good as the malts are the dominant feature but don't overpower the beer so it's just a thick mess. Not too much of a flavor profile but it is simple and effective.

On tap, pours a little bit cloudy, perhaps, but a nice auburn-brown, almost like a dark iced tea. There is a nice soapy/foamy head that collects at the edge and laces the glass. Light toasted notes, with a bit of sweetness in the nose. I also get a hint of coffee with a deep whiff.

The taste starts up less sweet than I'd expect, but a nice bitterness backed by roasted nuts. To this the toffee taste (and sweetness) comes. The balance to me is quite good, and the tastes hit most of the tongue. The lingering taste is mildy wood-dry, but a lingering sugar sweetness also dances in the background.

Mildly impressed with the taste and balance of the beer. It has a touch of brown ale characteristics, and the alcohol is unnoticeable (it's not too strong at 7.4%). A very enjoyable beer, regardless.
