Opaque dark brown, almost black color, with strong activity. Creamy and foamy sparkly light brown 3 finger island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with strong legs.

Pleasant floral and fruity nose. Flavors of toffee, grains, apricot, banana, coriander, clove, floral and herbal spices. Strong caramel and fruity sweetness creating a toasty and bread feel.

Milky light body with prickly carbonation. Faint and short finish, ending with a fruity and herbal spicy thick tongue feel. A little vinous and flat.

Overall a good craft with decent flavors, a fresh smell, and a superb look. A little stale and flat. Unbalanced being overly sweet with a weird rotten banana feel.

Sloppy mess. Looks like turd water.

Less fruity than I'd thought it'd be. Pleasing, better than I'd expected.
