Draft in a sampler on the Public House side. Pours a deep, hazy amber with a small but lasting beige head. Notes of brown sugar, pecan, caramel, dry cereal malts, mellow spices, and dates. The notes pop a bit more in the nose than in the flavor. Medium-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good bock.
