Almost black in the glass with a serious tan head. Appropriately roasty and chocolaty with interesting underlying notes of dried blackberry, black plum skins, oak and soft sour nuances, making it somewhat wine-like. Lively but rich and smooth on the palate with light carbonation and attractive flavors of molasses, biscuit and dried dates.
