Dark maple syrup, light off-white head. Nose of rich malt and earthy hops. The flavor has a massive body with a little sweetness and alcohol presence. Nutty finish with a reinforcement of the large body. Thick drinking (chewy), I could only have a couple of these. Maybe more hops? I don’t know.

From a growler purchased at Pauls Grocery in McCall, ID. Pours dark amber with a beige head. Nose of caramel malts and light fruit. Medium plus in body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is big on the malts but there are some grassy and floral hops there in the finish along with some bitterness.. Pretty darn good.

Aroma and flavor of nuts, roast grains. Thin head fading to nothing on dark brown body. Taste a bit more bitter than 17 IBUs, was expecting this to be a heller bock, so pleasantly surprised to find it dark.
