Underrated. Near black pour. Aroma leans toward molassus. Taste is molassus, brown sugar and roasted malt. Think sweet medium roast coffee. Makes itself heard, but not overwhelming. Very good.

2/18/16. Growler from Craft on Draft. Black pour under a nice khaki head. Roasty aroma, smells creamy if that makes sense, light caramel. Smooth flavor, creamy, milk chocolate, caramel, light roastiness. Reminds me of a creamy Irish stout, weirdly enough. Not bad!
