Pours a deep amber color that has a orange glow. Nice creamy one inch head. Lower retention on the head. A thin layer of foam resides on top of this beer throughout the session. Spotty lacing.
Aroma is mostly mild fruit and big malt and yeast.
Taste is very nice. Starts off with a nice fruit flavor. I can't decide which fruits I am tasting, could be a berry of some type, has a slight tartness and works into a well balanced malty blend of fruits and malts with a bit of yeast flavors on the finish. A hint of spice or clove is present on the back end as well. Finishes with both a mild tartness and a bit of sweetness.
Light to medium body with a medium carbonation.
A very nice beer from Dark Horse. Nice level of complexity and everything is well balanced and very enjoyable. It was not what I was expecting and it was a nice surprise! Try one!
