Almost mahogany in color with an off-white head. Nose is heavy on the rye, molasses, and toffee maltiness. Some floral and earthy hops, a bit of pine, and a mild roast note. Flavor has a moderate bitterness to go with a strong malt profile of molasses, toffee, and rye. Hints of chocolate and roast, floral, earthy, and piney hops to add some balance.

"interesting beer...seemed casked though it was not. had it with a hearty breakfast. cloudy brown, great interplay with the ample hops, spicy rye, and sweet malt. intruiging beer, makes me want more of there stuff. not as good in the bottle (3.8+ on tap, 3.4 or so bottled)."
