I got the draught version in a can. Little to on smell. It poured wonderfully though. As I poured it into the glass the it was a creamy color and slowly settled into a dark brown clear liquid. It was almost cascading. The head it formed was creamy and lasted until I was finished with the beer but sadly the flavor was very mild. The ale was like the head creamy all the way down. It was a very interesting drink to have and I would recomend to anybody watch it be poured.

12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma is mildly sweet, with light caramel. Light peat. Some toast, too. Not much else. Ok. Transparent amber body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a fair amount of malt sweetness, before this becomes a little husky and grainy in the middle. More toastiness. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Pretty straight-forward, and not too exciting.
