The beer pours a clear copper amber color with some ruby highlights. The one finger light beige head shows average retention. Once dissipated a light and sporadic lacing remains a top the beer.
Aromas of sweet caramel malts are in no shortage here! Alongside the malty notes are enticing bready notes back by abundant aromas of dark fruits. The fruit notes are dominated by the dark dried variety including raisins and figs.
The palate echoes the nose rather seamlessly. Caramel and toffee notes hit right off the bat and are immediately followed with malty and bready notes. The rich dark fruit notes of fig, raisins and cherries join the party and meld perfectly with the other flavors. There is a light grassy hop note on the finish that provides balance. The finish is otherwise crisp and clean.
