Brown color, with strong ruby red reflexes. One finger of beige foam.
Dark malts in the smell, a light roast, a good amount of candy sugar, and some spices. Light fruitiness, some dustiness.
Same notes in the taste, with something of coffeish and chocolately. Roast again. Still well drinkable and pleasant.
In the end, a good beer, typical notes, but well used.
Balanced aftertaste, average persistance, with sugar and caramel, but not too much.
