Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium foamy tan head that dissipates steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and caramel malt. Medium to full body with flavors of earthy malt, stone fruit and resiny hops. The finish is malty up front with an earthy hop aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
