Pours a brilliant deep brown with garnet highlights and a frothy cream head that dissipates to minimal foam.

Molasses, treacle, dates, raisins, figs, and prunes form the aroma.

Flavor follows suit, with dark fruit balancing against toasted malt and a lightly bitter, tar finish. The balance is definitely sweet, but that dry finish prevents it from being cloying.

Body is full, with minimal carbonation. Alcohol warmth is surprisingly moderate.

The melanoidin character and deep esters really stand out and balance each other well.
