Bottle. Beer of the month club. Very dark brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some toastiness, fruits, chocolaty and nutty notes and a bit of hops and alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, nuts and fruits. Finishes with bitter and slightly spicy hops and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied with a somewhat thick and rounded feel. Not bad.

On tap. Poured a hazy brownish amber with a thick white head that laced thickly and lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of malts with biscuit, caramel, hay and bread coming through with a hint of fruit. Flavor was similarly malty with lots of biscuits and bread with a bit of caramel sweetness to round out the beer.
