Has a grainy nose with traces of fruit and treacle. Pours brilliant copper amber under a 1” white finely bubbled foam cap. Very lacy. Big, super creamy lightly toasted malt character, graham cracker, hint of caramel, traces of light fruit, dries on the finish with some grainy astringency. Medium to medium full body and slightly below medium carbonation. Very drinkable.
