Dark brown body, reddish crimson highlights when held to the light. Plenty of lace, the head retreats slowly leaving behind sheets of lacing coating the glass in an intricate fan pattern. Great head retention, the surface never seems to break on this beer.

Aromas of toasted malt, light cocoa and fruity indistinct hops.

Flavors are similar to the nose, mild toasty malt sits underneath a muddled citrus fruitiness that never clearly expresses itself beyond "fruit". At first its maybe raisin, later citrus, who knows... only a muddled character prevails. Medium bodied with a slightly drying finish, the abv is less detectable. Overall it's interesting, an IBA I guess, but not really something i'd be excited to drink again.
