Can. Pours a very dark brown color with effectively no head on it at all. Nose is extremely malty with what seems like a little bit of toasting and caramel in there. Taste is actually sweeter than I would have thought, with the toasting coming through after. Not a huge fan of this.

16 oz pint can purchased at Keg Liquors in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is a darker brown with some golden and a noisy one inch tan head. The crackles down somewhat quickly. The aroma is caramel malt, some apple fruit, and earthy peat. The taste is sharp malt sweet, the caramel, along with toffee and brown sugar. In addition to the sweet, there is some grass, along with earth and a touch of the peat from the nose. The palate is medium to light bodied, a low carbonation level, almost flat, and a decent amount of alcohol heat in the aftertaste. Not totally my type of beer, though solidly made.
