Taster at Bruery tasting room. Aroma and flavor of a light, roasty malt. Not too much hop character, but why would there be? Anyway, it supposedly has 20% Black Tuesday...idk, maybe.

I had this on tap at the Bruery in Placentia. It was roasty but had a slightly sweet element to it that you don’t see in brown ales
