Nice dark chestnut color with ruby red highlights glowing strong, super thin off-white soft head that faded fast, leaves extremely tiny spots of lace.
Smell is all sweet yummy malts, quite a load of em, very candyish toffee in its aroma with a bit of dark fruits lingering in plum, raisin, and star fruit. Great malty nose!
Taste is nice mild toffee and large amounts of tangy sweet malts, full mouthfeel upfront; turns midway with a very clean and easy bitterness and the end is wonderful with a nice dry toastyness and finishing with a fantastic light nutty almond-like dryness. Super nice layers and character in flavor and effect thoughout. Quite complex and put together perfectly.
Feel is full at first, then lending into a more of a smooth mediumness with a finish in the mouth of light cotton or nut skins around the tongue coming in late. Nicely done!
This is one heavenly drinkable brew, with a small exception of the alcohol thats pretty sneaky and shows itself in bigger gulps. That along with the full feel leads it to be not a drinkalbe 5, so for me its just under exceptional, but its still very, very good considering.
Highly recommended! If you get your hands on it, do! Then drink it!
