Pours a dark brown/ruby with a thick ivory head

Smells like dark fruits with roasted malts and a touch of hop aroma.

Dark fruits are strong in flavor too, with a toasty butter cracker flavor and a nice hop bitterness to round things out.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Slightly thick and enhanced by the nitro-tap. Slightly under-carbonated, as the flavors take hold.

Overall this is a tasty ESB.
