COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big flavor session beer combines dates, plums, and other dark fruits, with toffee, caramel, and toast maltiness. Wood and damp earth tones from the British Ale yeast and UK hops play supporting roles. Overall, reminiscent of toasted whole wheat with dark fruit marmalade. Clean sweet mouth feel ending moderately but firmly bitter and lightly roasted. As this beer warms toffee notes run wild!

2.7
onceblind (9859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Clear dark brown hued with a quickly dissipating head, though it leaves great lace. The aroma is kinda nutty with caramel tones with crystal malts. The flavor, unfortunately, falls kinda short. Has a light body with a semi-metallic aftertaste. In between is ok, with mild tones of caramel grains and light hop bitterness. But it’s hard to get anything else through the metallic taste and light body. Dry bready finish.
