      Deep red. Big dense head.

      Malt, dark bread crust, toast.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Thick, smooth, malty. Mildly spicy, with a nice molasses note. Very very mild floral hop flavor, very low bitterness. Just a hint of alcohol, and a hint of roastiness in the finish.

      Not bad at all.
