Draft @ Freetail .. . pours a radio black .. solid headring, lacing is very good .. . tar, light oak, and subtle smoke .. . a bit chewy .. very solid brew, the oak comes out nicely but i still like the bigger smoke presence in the original .. . . My goodness, what a lovely suit, sheriff. Is that seersucker?
