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!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
