From a fresh growler that was filled (counter pressure) 48 hours ago. The aroma on this is really nice with light hints of peat, an underlying sweetness, and a little nuttiness. Light berries are also present. Very nice aroma. An attractive transparent amber body is present on this with a smallish off-white head. Starts with a nice and sweet maltiness. This is a nice malt bomb with delicate peat flavors coming through the middle. Nice carbonation. Virtually no bitterness. Extremely easy-drinking and very sessionable. This is just a world-class example of the style. Fatehunter (2605) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2017
