Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet. Pours a dark amber, almost chestnut brown color with ruby edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with a musty hop presence countering the malt notes.  Hints of soil and pine followed by zesty/peppery spice, caramel and toffee.  Some subtle fruit notes as well. Medium bodied with a balance of earthy hops,  zesty spic, dark fruit and sweet malt.  Not as bitter or earthy as the nose suggests but it’s still there with hints of soil and pine.  Spices more prominent than in the aroma  with prominent pepper and coriander.  Odd combo of flavors. As it warms the malt character become stronger with hints of rye, caramel, toffee, cherry and other dark fruit notes.  Easy drinking but a bit earthy for my liking.

Tap at FC. Dark red-amber, transparent, thin beige ring for a head. Nose is hot, heavy honey and prune at front, sugary with light grass. Extremely thin body shows light tea, bitterness, and sugar running throughout. Non-biere de garde qualities, everything too accented, no softness or melding flavors, lightly phenolic and overly fruity through finish.
