Dark brown pour. Aroma of soy sauce, nuts, and dark fruit. Flavor is similar. The soy couples with a grainy malt profile in a way that I didn’t really enjoy. Not BJ’s best offering, but not bad.

On tap at Barley Johns. Pours murky brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is mild roasted malt little spice and Belgian yeast. Taste has a subtle bitterness with malt some nuts and dark fruit and a nice spice finish. Palate is thin and dry.

Tap at the brewpub. This is a flop - flat and watery, almost devoid of any flavor elements. These guys are usually better than this.
