Very nice starter beer, pop this open then move to a growler of something not as refined.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. 2013 batch. Aged. Tasted on November 13, 2015.
Dark brown pour with huge tan had and some ruby red hues if you really look at it.
The aroma is not as chocolate and dark malt based as similar beers. I also don’[t get a whole lot of smoke but it may have something to do with being 2 years old even though it is bottle conditioned. An odd sort of cherry fruit note though.
Smooth medium body mainly.
The taste tends to bring out a kind of fruity malt character with little bitterness. Everything about this might have been better 2 years ago
