Red-brown color. Brownish head, quite compact, average persistence. Opalescent appearance.
He smell is weet and caramel. Caramel sugar. Maybe a little tedious, but quite personal. Some ripe fruit (peach, dried plum, maybe strawberry?).
Caramel in the taste too, with a sharp note of butter. Some alcohol, too. In any case, too sweet.
Medium-light body.
Obviously, it is sweet in the aftertaste too, with caramel etc. But in the background there is also some bitter, even some liquorice.
Unbalanced.

Edit: second taste, some months later. Better. More balanced, and less sweet.
