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.

9/21/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown, almost black pour, some ruby under the light, with a small tan head that fades fast and doesn’t lace at all. Big fruity aroma with dark fruits, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart fruits, roast, and earthiness. Not bad!
