Pours copper with a thin but lasting head. Aromas of caramel, toasted bread, and hops. Flavor is huge malt with a good dose of bitterness. Strikes a very nice balance on my tongue. Full-bodied with a smooth bitter finish. Excellent.

Had this as part of an 8 beer flight. Great malt flavor with very strong bitter hop finish that hangs around.
