Pours a very dark, cloudy brown with a thick tan head that slowly fades.
First sip: Dark roasted malts and a lot of mixed fruit flavours. There is a very faint hops after-taste. The alcohol taste is lurking in the background but it isn't pronounced. Nice mouth-feel: thick and smooth.
This is a very nice beer and is exceptionally easy to drink. It does taste a little alcoholic but once in the stomach it leaves a nice warm feeling, which is what you would expect from something that's 9% Definitely one to drink slowly. The flavours get better as the glass warms. Which is nice.
