Draught @ 21st Amendment Brewery, San Francisco. 7.8% ABV, 40 IBU.
Pours a dark copper colour with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts, really strong almonds and spiciness. Flavour of toasted malts, strong almonds, chocolate biscuit, orange and spices. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, warming, toasted finish. Alcohol comes through a bit too much. Overall a rather intense ESB.
