On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a foamy off white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of bread and grain with a bit of fennel coming through. Flavor has sweet grains with a hint of light fruit and a bit of caraway coming through.

Ruby-copper pours with a thin, off-white head. Aroma is bready with spices and hops. Flavor is bready with hints of raisins, caramel, licorice, hops, and other spices. Medium body with good carbonation and the alcohol is masked nicely. Pretty tasty and rather unique brew overall.
