The aroma is papery and grainy with caramel malt, alcohol, and earth. The appearance is light brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle. Deep garnet color with a small beige head. Mildly smoky roasted malt nose hints at rubbing alcohol. Sweet sticky dried fruit malt flavor has some smokiness. Very noticeable warming alcohol flavor. Some hops, but malt dominates. Intense bittersweet mouthfeel and finish. Not a favorite.

bottle. a clear light brown/amber beer with a small head. nose of sweet dark fruits, medicine, caramel, and earthy toasted peat. big toast flavors and grape nuts. mild smoked peat in the background. some dark fruity esters. full body with a lot of carbonation that works well to counteract the chewiness. a beast of a beer. maybe too beastly. i like the grape nuts. the medicinal quality is a bit much.
