Pours a murky rusty brown.
Nose is like cheese. smells like funky cheese. like blue cheese that was aged in a fat manís ass crack.
Taste is cheesy too, slight tastes of peated malt, some molases, but that cheese wont go away.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub (also cask later). Poured a very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Rich malty aroma. Near full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is darkly malty, but not very sweet. Not at all sticky. Maybe a hint of smoke. Finishes clean. It drinks very well. Too well. Notes based on tap, but the cask was even better.
