Smell-dark fruits and caramel.
Taste-that fruity character is the first thing that hits you lips.
Mouth-This really opens up on the swirl. The fruity flavors, caramel, slight hops. It's all there. Beautiful blend.
Drinkability-A great sipping drink...especially as it warms. Complex but never overwhelming. Delicious.
