Bottle pours a slightly cloudy dark caramel, large frothy tannish head, attractive lacing, with very light carbonation.   Somewhat of a biscuity aroma, malty, slight alcohol and hop profile on the nose.   It has that definite Olde Ale or English Strong vibe to it.   Malty flavor up front, slightly biscuity, with mellow hop bitterness.   Maybe a bit buttery as well, but very subtle.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with only a slight hop bite and a malty background.   Decent, but nothing out of the ordinary.
