The beer is brown, almost black but with a tone of red. A beige head, good lacing.

The smell is sweet, dried fruits, raisins, apricots, and a meaty tone.

The taste is also sweet, raisins, dates, banana, and some boiled meet.

Medium carbonation, a soft feeling, a bit sticky.

It is not bad, but just a bit too sweet for me.
