A ruby-amber pour with some small white-head and decent lacing. A nice caramel toffee smell. Had a slick feel to this medium bodied beer. Slightly sweet with its roasted malts tasting, and I found a bit of smokeyness as well. A good beer.

On tap, pours a clear amber with an off white head, the aroma was pretty malty with a good amount of sweetness, the flavor has a caramel front end with some toffee in the finish, still sweet overall, not all that great.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 On tap at Dragonmead; pour is frothy beige, with both fine and large bubbled character present. This brew retains fairly well. On the nose; caramel malt sweetness, coupled with smoke and dark fruit. On the tongue; there is a bitterness present. Its sweet and smoky, and fruity as well. Its also a bit light bodied, in a negative way. Plums, caramel, peat, and english hops sums it up

Poured up on tap at the Dragonmead brewpub with deep amber body and off white head. The mild aroma offers up some cherries, a light amount of caramel and a sense of earthiness. The taste is pretty rich with reduced plum juice, ripe cherries, prunes and raisins as well as caramel followed by a pleasing sense of mineral earthiness.
