[bottle] Malty aroma, with some concerning butterscotch elements. Reddish amber color, clear, with a tiny ring of bubbles. Flavors are full of malt power and some considerable bitterness, but any real unique character seems to be overpowered by the Ringwood... Not a bad beer, I personally have a hard time getting past the dominant yeast character.

Has a hazy ruby color with an off-white head and sweet malt smell. Taste is sweet/malt/spice and finishes with a hop/spice flavor. Overall one of the better beers from this brewery.
