Deep mahogany/red color with low co2, and a light brown rocky head. Lacing is sticky and head retention is low. Aroma is acerbic and malty with a metallic background. Tastes lightly sweet at the start, with dark fruits, caramel with a metallic dry finish. Palate is medium bodied, creamy and lightly effervescent.

Pours a dark brown that glints red in the light. A foamy cream/tan head that attenuates to lacing around the glass. A dark roasted malt aroma with notes of Belgian yeast. The first pull into the mouth promises mild creaminess. Pleasant smooth creaminess over the entire tongue with a mild bite of coffee acidity on the back of the tongue. Fireplace or BBQ smoke throughout. Nothing special, but quite drinkable.
