Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours deep ruddy copper with a transient yellowish head. Aroma is lightly smoky roasted malt. Full bodied. Flavor is sweet malt with some mild spice. Maybe a touch of smoke. Or not. There’s a lot of malt - but I don’t find burnt or chocolate. More treacle. I think there’s some floral hop, but am not sure. It is very tasty in a heavy malty sort of way. I’m considering whether this is a smoke tinged barley wine thing. Whatever, it tastes good.
