Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, citrus, and yeast aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex bitterswee flavor with a medium sweet & smoke finish of moderate duration. I not sure I would recommend this to a friend.
