This pours a ruddy amber in color. There’s a somewhat chocolate-malt tinged aroma, with a touch of stone fruits and a hint of rummy booze. The flavor has some tart hints to a roasty-smooth maltiness (perhaps from uncleaned/quickly transferred lines?). Enjoyable, but a bit too much going on for its own good.
