Draught at the WBF in Raleigh. Copper, with white head, good lacing. Sweet aroma, with caramel. Flavor is grainy, poorly balanced. Dissapointing finish. Unusual from Highland, most of their beers are excellent.

a cloudy brown/caramel colored beer with no head. aroma of sour apples, butter, toffee, peanut brittle. flavor is similar. not a bad bock but its a little thin and the appearance losses some points.

Bottle. Pours a crystalline dark copper with a small head. The aroma is a little gummy with hints of butter, caramel, some wooden hops, maybe apples. Ample bock character is noted in the flavor, not my favorite thing. I found the finish to be a bit sticky. HInts of fig, apple, butter, light earth are present. Not really interesting. Its a shame they sacrificed Tasgall for this.
