On tap @ Trailhead Tavern Fort Collins. Pours a pretty clear dark reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Rich caramel sugar, dark fruity, herbal, toffee aroma. Pretty rich, quite sweet, caramel, a bit watery, slightly boozy, lightly herbal flavor. OK.
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of toast, bread, dough, hints of yeast into some caramel, toffee notes as well, nice spice notes in there as well, hints of earth as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, hints of bread, yeast in there going into a bit of grass, spice, finishing fairly sweet, dry.
