Bottle share at Beer Boutique. Thanks! Dark orange or brown, clear, still, big foamy tan head. Aroma is toffee, touch woody, a little cabbage. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, toffee, soft yeast character, light metallics. Oak not showing up loads but it’s noticeable. A quaffable interesting beer.
