On tap at the Grad in Davis, CA. Poured a deep red color and smelled of clove and spice. Sweet malty flavor, but lack of carbonation really took away from the experience.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Beautiful finger and half of off-white head on a dark red colored body.
The aroma is nice but faint. Caramel and dry barley.
The taste heavy on the malt but not too sweet. There’s a little hit of lemon bitter in the middle. It finishing long and dry.
The texture is thicker with low carbonation.

Bottle via Jason + Elizabeth. Pours a medium brown color, off white head. Nose is big, caramel and candi sugar, raisins, and just a hint of the rye. Body is medium, surprising in its lack of malt. Finish slightly tart. Very interesting, can’t complain.

22oz bomber pours amber with a quarter inch tan head of foam. The aroma has a bit of roasted malts and malt earthiness and then some mild spicy to floral to earthy hop notes. The taste is pretty rich with modestly roasted malts and then a mix of spicy hops, earthy hops and a mineral note. To midway the roasted malts grow a bit and pick up a sliver of floral hops into the finish. This has big flavor that comes together pretty darn well.
