Draft at the brewery during RBWG. Pours a clear dark amber to brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have, well, malt, malt and more malt. Caramel, toasted bread, mild earthy notes, hints of buttery toffee. Decent, but no complexity here. ndhoeh (15) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2014

22oz bomber from the brewery during RBWG. Poured a thinner density foamy super light beige head sitting on top of a deep brown body with orange/brown edges. Aroma is earthy, peat, light chocolate, bad citrus, wet old mowed grass.Flavor is actually a bit better with lots of similar notes. Earth, peat, chocolate, some old grass, dough, touch of nut shell and tea. Solid, better with warmth. Leighton (22819) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear brown with a modest, mostly-white foam head. Very tasty stuff with a rich malt character, including notes of ripe fruits, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Creamy texture. Sugary finish with mild warmth, bread, alcohol, more well-ripened fruits, dried fruits. Quite tasty and nicely executed for the style.

Taster at the brewery (RBWG). Nice toffee presence. Some odd cereal grainy notes in the flavor, but some nice sweetness and peat overall. On another note, thanks to the welcoming staff who put out a meat and cheese plate for us! jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
