Super, dark-brown, garnet body. Aggressive pour produces a magnificent thick frothy head. Some nice lacing into the bargain. Looks great.
Caramel malts are completely and magnificently present. It’s all malt but it has an unexpected, and wonderfully balance-effecting, peppery ending. The finish adds a real unexpected bitterness that is unusual for the style but makes it a great beer. The balance makes this amazingly drinkable.
Brown sugar malts with some burned chocolate in there too.
Mouthfeel is full and satisfying and I was delighted with this purchase.
