Tap. Pours clear brown with a trace of fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, figs, pears, faint floral hops, and some light woody notes. Flavor is sweet malt forward with good supporting dark fruit esters; dry finish with faint scotch notes. Medium body, low carbonation, and medium warmth.

Reddish brown, with a thin ring of foam. Earthy, mossy aroma. Very rich, and sweeter than I expected. Hints of chocolate and coffee, and a lot of earthy, mossy flavors. Very tasty.
