Rich malt just dominates with impressions of plum, quick bread, golden syrup, rum, and challah. Marmalade and daisy hop flavor and a medium bitterness balance the malt and increase drinkability. Mostly dry finish, with dark fruits and rich bread lingering along with a bit of bitterness and orangey hops.
