3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Light amber pour with a small khaki head. Caramel and maltiness in the aroma, touches of earthiness, black tea, and pit fruits. Similar flavor, lots of caramel maltiness, some biscuit, more tea and fruitiness. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the brewpub, and how nice to find something on cask that really ought to be on cask, rather than the 12& abv peppercorn-and-PBJ sort of nonsense. This is a ruddy-gold, dusty-bitter ale with malt and tea like flavors melding together, and a touch of marmalade. Homey.

Nutty and biscuit-forward aroma with some toast. Flavor is toasty with some mild earthy, floral hops. Smooth and creamy. Excellent.
