Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft.

"No idea what "style" I was partaking in while drinking this, but I dug it. Floral and hoppy, but thats just one part of what was going on. Ample malt As well...caramel, nutty and fruity with a good dose of dates and a bittersweet finish. Nicely done."
