Deep, clear tea color. Stiff respectable khaki head. Malty, candied woody aroma. Sweet up front, chalky, cocoa. The edge is buffered. Woody, peppery. Very light tin. Mouthy - medium heavy. Finish is alcohol bitter, aftertaste starts to cling. Definitely sweeter as it warms, vanilla tones emerge. Technically good. On Tap, Proof.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rich caramel color, slight head. Amber malt, honeyed, and with a touch of maple, and some deep melanoidin malt. Understated, but pleasingly complex. Mouthful of freshly milled grains. Medium caramel and moderate maltiness. Honeyed malt finish. Nice, but different from the typical doppel.
