Bottle. Caramel nose, with gentle roast malt, earthy notes, citrus, and light breadiness. Medium reddish/brown color, small off-white head. Sweet initial flavor, with caramel, somehwat spicy and nutty. Very small whisky note, too. A touch phenolic in mid palate and final. Thin-medium body. Pleasant, and full of toasty malt flavors.

Pours a dark slightly cloudy copper from a bottle, aroma of creme brulee, bitter herbs, flavor somewhat medicinal, like cherry cough syrup without the cherry. Bitterness lingers quite a long time, slightly off-putting. Okay beer. tightslice (1397) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015

12oz tap pour in The Goat Hill Tavern. Costa Mesa, Orange County on 11th May 2015. Red hue to the brown body, off white head that faded fast in the cooled plastic tankard it came in. Semi-sweet caramel maltiness in the nose and taste with a mild bitterness just below the surface. A bit too cold for my palate, but a decent enough beer all the same. batneil (751) - - APR 4, 2015
