Smokey flavor with a subtle hop to it. Really good overall flavor leaves you with tasty goodness.

Roasted to perfection. Very impressed with this lightly toasted delight. My fourth and unfortunately final Celt Experience beer I'll be tasting at this event. I've been told they don't import to the U.S. Get it here guys! Wowed!
