Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, canned on 15th May 2018. Poured into an Epic Brewing pint glass.
Appearance: A clear dark brown colour with a slight red hue and a slightly more than one finger foamy tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly to a lasting thin cap while leaving some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Strong cinnamon and raisin followed by caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, cream with light biscuit and toasted oats.
Taste: Cinnamon, raisin, chocolate, brown sugar, cream, vanilla with some light caramel and toasted bread.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Cinnamon was a bit too strong for me and body was probably on the light side, but raisins and chocolate still is a good combination.
