This beer poured a very dark brown with a slight dark brown head. The smell is mostly sweet toasted malt with a bit of dark fruit. The taste is pretty close to the smell, starting off sweet with a bit of raisin. Not much of a toasted or burnt taste, I expected a little more considering how dark it is. The mouthfeel was slightly thick with a mild amount of carbonation. this is a very drinkable beer, and definitely interesting even if I wouldn't call it a great example of the style.

Opaque deep brown, garnet highlights, with a frothy cappuccino head that lingers as a ring.
Nutty, lightly caramelized and toasted malt aroma, with a taste that's sweeter than expected. More caramel than nuts, and minimal roast. There's a slight metallic note. Carbonation is higher than I'd prefer, and it lacks roast for the style.

Black from afar, but a hold to the light reveals clearer ruby at the edges. A head the color and consistency of latte foam.
Figgy. Up front, it's all fruit. Bitter and raisiny, like reduced wine. Earthy hop character, a touch of cocoa powder and toasted wheat bread. Very balanced in the finish, with just a touch of raisiny tang on the sides of the tongue. Clean and light. Brown sugar finish. Reminds of a Belgian Dubbel, almost.
Soft body, cotton balls, light. Moderate, prickly carbonation. Clears the palate after each sip, a street sweeper washing it away. Very easy to drink.
Not incredibly complex, but very drinkable. Would be good at a soccer match on a hot Brazilian day.
