Aroma is nutty and chocolate malt, light roast, light woody hops, oak and prunes. Flavor is nutty and chocolate malt with light roast notes, light woody hops and bitterness, oak and prunes with a sweet finish. Full body, medium carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

On draft at the brewery. Dark brown, semi murky/muddy, with a small light tan head. Very sweet, molasses, brown sugar, a bit earthy, and milk chocolate. Slick, somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Ok.
