On tap at McNellie’s OKC. Pours a clear reddish brown with a slight creamy ivory head. Not much of an aroma, but there are notes of malt, caramel and dark fruit. On the tongue, you can detect some nice chocolate, leather, smoke and a touch of prune. Medium oily mouth that lets the bitterness linger for a while. I don’t typically drink a lot of bitters, but this one is really good despite the lack of aroma.
