The aroma is of malt & honey and is the best aspect of this beer. In the flavor, there is lots of malt, sweetness and oak. It finishes a bit on the sweet side for my taste. A very drinkable beer otherwise.

Tap @ THE Steakout Saloon. Four years ago, I was drinking this constantly. It’s been awhile since I burned out on it. Pours a dark, clear copper appearance with an off white head with poor head retention. Sweet caramel malty, a bit dark citrus fruity, pear, earthy aroma. Apple, pear, light toffee, a bit toasty caramel malty flavor. Ehhh, not as tasty as I remembered.
