Pours a deep, dark brick red with a large and bubbly beige head that very quickly falls to leave a thin band. Aroma is wonderful, instantly rich toffee combined with malty dried fruits and a syrupy, spicy finish.....yum.

Taste is not as sweet as the aroma suggested, initial taste is of rich dark fruits (figs and raisins) then sweet roasted malts take over and then a slight hint of spice in the finish.

For a beer packing a 10% punch it is very smooth drinking with just the right balance of carbonation also hardly any alcohol is noticeable - yes it is there but more of a warming glow rather than roaring burn.
