Had on tap. Pours clear, ruby in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is plums, brown sugar, and toasted malt. There also appears to be light hopping for slight bitterness at the end. While I prefer others in the style, this is very tasty and well worth a try.

Sampled from a 33cl bottle I picked up in a trade in London. Best by date was May 2013 so I'm a bit beyond but wouldn't think that's a big deal with the style.

A stream of foam came pouring out of the bottle as soon as I opened it. Fortunately I had a glass close by and managed to salvage a good portion. I wasn't sure what to expect at that point.

A - A light brown color with serious haze and a small beige head. Looks a bit like pond water.

S - Brown sugar, apple, breads.

T - Lots of brown sugar with some green apple and hints of raisin.

M - Moderate, smooth mouthfeel with a mild carbonation of fine bubbles (I think the bulk of the carbonation exited before the pour).

O - Decent flavor. I'm not sure what caused the foamover but it doesn't seem to be infection.

Red brown body with a small head that dissipates to a ring. Some lacing.

Nose is plum/raisin sweet, a bit of brown malt sugar. Harbinger of interesting tastes to come.

Tastes of brown malt, plum notes, a bit of roast in the middle palate, finishes dry with some cocoa and slight grassy hop bitterness. Taste is a bit subdued given the nose.

Body is light and carbonation is low, with a light almost mineral water mouthfeel.

This is a good, light, fruity dark beer, pleasant but not spectacular. Good for pairing with food, had this with a sweet potato black bean chili and it hit the spot.
