Poured into a glass, it produce a 1 1/2 finger beige head. The beer color was a dark mahogany.
The aroma was just right... caramel, biscuit, hint of dark fruit.
The taste was similar. Light hop presence, upper-medium mouth-feel, Low-medium carbonation.
Very tasty. Good beer for a night, that you just want one to three beers.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass

A: Pours dark brown with a hint of ruby. Seems clear but too dark to see through. There was a light tan head that fades almost immediately to a thin cap.

S: A rich, malty smell. Toffee and caramel. A little bit of dark fruit, raisin. And just a touch of smoke.

T: Warm malt all the way. Toffee and molasses blends into raisin and fig. Roasted malt complements a mild wood flavor. Just a touch of grassy hops in the background.

M: Moderately thick mouthfeel. Alcohol is present and warming but not too much because the beer is sweet. Carbonation is mild.

O: Tasty and filling. Warm brown and roasted malt gives a nice, deep, smoky flavor. Looking forward to having this one when the weather turns cold.
