Draught at the brewery. Same look as the regular version. The aroma has earthy caramel, toasty grain and chocoalte, savory-spicy pepper and light yeast fruitiness. The flavor is similar to the regular but has a nice subtle peppercorn savoriness and light heat that made everything pop and took some of the spotlight off the yeast, which this beer needed. A nice pepper beer.
