Nice looking pour with distinct red highlights amongst the dark amber body. A thin head that quickly disappears with some small amount of lacing.
Lots of malt sweetness and sugary caramel in the nose.
Quite heavy on the alcohol upfront, but this fades quickly to give a warmth through the rest of the drink.
Mouthfeel is not as good as one would be led to believe by the nose, in fact quite thin in comparison to what I was expecting.
Definite molasses and malt body, which I like, but the mouthfeel was a little too thin for my liking.
