Growler pour thanks to JohnGalt1. I think Toby is working his hardest to make me one of the top Montana raters. Pours out a dark brown topped with a off-white head. Aroma was of wood, nut, chocolate, pit fruit, and some light hop notes. Taste was as the aroma with a nice sweetness along with some rich light roast malts.

Swingtop thanks to Toby, handbottled. Pours a mostly opaque brown color with a medium grey head. An interesting nose; sweet hops and dried fruit and chocolate. The flavor is a robust mix of cocoa, dark chocolate, fruit and dryness. Fairly hoppy. Nice. Unusually full for the style in terms of flavor.
