Deep cherry wood color with thick off-white head and lacing. Mild, dark bread aroma. Slick, soft mouthfeel with low carbonation. Some tannic character, maybe a touch of cinnamon but otherwise not so spicy. Nice lingering hop finish. Thin but decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Charleston location. Pours hazy burnt orange witha small whitish head. The aroma is mild caramel, some hay. The flavor is very earthy. Some crackery malt, dirty esters, and spicy hops. Single minded and very discordant, but somehow it comes across as tasty to me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours slightly hazy light amber with minimal head. The aroma, much like their other offerings, was rather weak though I could detect caramel, butter, and paper. The flavor is slightly astringent with the faintest of spices, a bit of nutmeg perhaps. There is a flat earthiness which is upfront, but not much else to balance. I thought it was just okay.
