Flava and finish is the strong suit. Which is good for drinking a beer. Hint of toasty nutty in aroma but nice and powerful in the Flava. Finishes slightly sweet yet bitter and dry.

Pours a dark amber with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has some roastiness and nuttiness...bready as billed. Flavor follows suit and has nice earthy notes...faint spice and bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with a dry bitter/roasty finish.
