From bottle poured in a shaker. Big bold maltiness. Caramel notes, medium bodied clean hop finish. If you love a lot of grain, you’ll like this, other than that, probably not so much.

Rich malty caramel and biscuity aroma. Slight floral notes from hops come through. I can’t imagine this looking any better. Dark auburn red with beige head with good retention and spotty lacing. The taste is slightly bitter great malt backbone. Smooth integration of malt and hop.
