The beer is a dark brown with a ruby tint that comes through in the light. A dark cream colored head is reduced to a film with big bubbles and tons of sticky lacing. It smells of roasted malts and bread. The taste is of roasted malts and toasted bread up front. Also a sweet biscuit/toffee taste is present, and a faint hint of bitter hops is in there as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice dry finish.
