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.

Tap, shaker.

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.
