Sample at the brewpub. Cloudy brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt. Medium body with a smoky character and flavors of burnt malt, earth and hops. The finish is smoky with a peaty malt and charred wood aftertaste. Decent overall.
