Nutty, woodsy, leathery - belongs on the end of a stick over a fire pit, a cedar closet, or on the bottom shelf of an old man’s library. Very, very subtle stone fruit on the nose.

The Diamond, Brooklyn tap: pours light browb with a beige head. Aroma is pine, caramel, and general maltiness. Taste is malty with some hop bit in the finish. At first it seemed kind of weak but it grew on me later. Good.
