Tap, cask version. Pours murky dark brown with a thin beige/white head that dissipates fairly quickly and moderately laces. Nose is nutty with some biscuity malt and a hint of light resin. Flavor is much the same, with caramel and biscuit malt notes nicely balanced against a moderately bitter, resinous hop note with a short nutty and lightly bitter finish. Very good example of an overlooked style.
