Poured out of a can into one of my tulip glasses. This beer pours a clear, dark amber/copper color with some deep ruby highlights when held up to the light. Color reminds me of coca cola or something like that. The slightly tan, creamy looking head is about 1/2 to 2/3 of an inch thick when first poured. Eventually settles to a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with a decent surface film layer of foam on the beer's surface. Decent lacing but not great. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and some dark fruit notes of plum, raisin, figs, and perhaps some apple. Has a good, sweet, slightly smokey, caramel malt flavor upfront that gives way to a hint of peppery spice and then to the aforementioned dark fruit flavors that is all rounded out with the toffee. No discernible hop presence here whatsoever. Has a, slightly crisp, and mostly smooth, creamy, frothy, slightly chewy and syrupy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a pretty sweet aftertaste and a dry finish. Easy to drink in a most excellent manner. Well worth a try!
