"another newbie from pfoxyjohn...and another memorable one. a nice bready spicy sweet aroma greeted me upon the pour. nice looking cloudy dark amber. lots of dark fruit, plum, alchohol, a hint of spice and brown sugar in the flavor. nice n complex...n warming. body is almost sticky, but the carbonation cuts right through it. a nice, well done grand cru from WI."

Amber pour. Aroma is very malty. Lots of caramel, some yeast and honey. Flavor is a total malt bomb with a slight metallic finish. Sweet but not cloying. A VERY light hop finish.
