Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off-white head. Sweet and malty, rather substantial. Not terribly complex, but a nice nose.

Sweet dark fruit notes are also there. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A deep caramel colored pour, off white head. Aroma has a hint of peat but is dominated by way too much malt. I felt like I was eating some spent grain when I drank this. Overpowering in my opinion.
