Orange colored pour, decent white head, good lacing. The aroma was strong grains, biscuits, herbal and woodsy hop aromas. The flavor followed with strong grains, rye and barley the most, strong biscuits and toffee at the fore. Finishes with a woodsy and slightly spicey bittering hop to counter balance the malts. Mouthfeel was moderate to full in body.
