Aroma is almost nil, just light medium malts. Candied pecans, roasted peanuts, and yes- as the description boasts, "caramel malt sweetness." Mouthfeel is rich but not heavy, with a sweet light-hopped finish. I’m sure that my overactive imagination is supplying the notes of smoked peat and wet hay, so I won’t mention those. My overall impression is so high because I finished my first pint without pausing to consider what was going on--this is a knockout sessioner.
