bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of a Vienna with leather. Med body. Flavor is a confusion. Definitely quite bitter. Certainly lightly smoky. I just do not know how to dissect and describe this very beautiful ale. Lovely stuff.
