On tap at the brewpub:
Caramel apples, various nuts and sweet earthiness combined to command respect. Different, inspired, and inspiring hearty sips.
Again, a rich body emboldened by the yeasty pepperiness. Caramel stands proud, but never intolerant, beside the grassy, earthy hops and fruity esters. Hop bitterness rises neatly onto the complex flavor equilibrium. One of the best tmavés I’ve ever had!
These guys sure know how to keep their workers happy.
