Pours a nice rusty amber with a one-finger foam head that dissipates quickly and doesn't leave any lacing. The aroma I picked up initially was nutty, malts, and raisins, a bread and caramel also prominent. Bread and caramel up front in the flavor, sweet malty bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is slight bitterness and a little metallic, medium carbonation.
