Temporarily nicknamed "MiraCLE" since the Cavs won the Finals. This one is pretty good, heavy on the malt but well balanced with some hop bite. Kind of reminded me of a hop heavier Nosferatu. Worth a try if you stop by the brewery.

Strong malty nose. Dark red, almost opaque pour with thick, persistent foam. Moderate malty / caramel taste that gave way to some bitterness at the end. Touches of nuttiness as it warmed up. Sweet finish.
