Deep amber color. Not a lot on the nose, mostly caramel and cola, maybe a little cinnamon and dark cherry. Very light mouthfeel, somewhat effervescent. The palate has more caramel, molasses, flat cola, grape candy, rye bread, with a little vanilla, coffee, cinnamon and allspice. The finish is short-to-medium in length with a nice spice heat that lingers on the front of the tongue, driven by some caramel, artificial grape flavor and baking spices. This bottle was a gift and not something I would reach for typically, but it is pleasant and very easy to drink.
