      Appearance (3)
      Bright deep red-brown. Big dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Caramel, fresh floral hops.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium-big body, fairly fizzy. Huge caramel malt character with lots of dark fruit and moderate alcohol. Finishes malt, fruity, and clean. Gets less fruity and more smoky as it warms.
