From notes taken 04/04/16:

Mostly opaque, deep copper with amber golden hues in the light. Fine, creamy beige head of moderate retention, mediocre but attractive lacing. Caramel and toffee aromas the strongest, but smells very berry-like. Evidently, quite malty. Loads of caramel and toffee still to the taste, but more so date-like than berries. Tart. Earthy, leafy, leathery hops set in within the first second or so, and grow and reverberate well through to the finish. Nice pleasantly bitter aftertaste, more rindiness now detectable. Hop bitterness, in the balance, makes malty character seem just a little watered down. Fairly dry. Medium- to full-bodied, soft, sloshy, gulpable, fine, but medium carbonation for the most part. Yet, prickly around the edges, in a manner of speaking. Slight astringency to it. Refreshing.
