16oz on nitro-tap pours light brown at first which separates nicely to black with off white head. Aromas of light brown sugars and molasses almost cookie like. Flavor is mild toward the bitter side, has an esb feel, some candy sugars in background. Body is extremely creamy and medium finish is clean. Drinks like a Guinness only mild and flavorfull

Draught at Phoenixville BrewPub (at 7.8%ABV): Aroma of grain, malt, slight sugar, light yeast, and light nuts.

Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, yeast, slight candi sugar, toasting, nuts, burnt toffee, and slight hops. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt and slight hop finish is slightly chalky. 7.8%ABV is hidden throughout.
