Bottle from Captain Cougar. Thanks Tom! Pours a beautiful garnet with a temporary light tan head. The aroma is simply caramel. Rather full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is caramel with a light touch of hop, maybe. Finishes bready caramel. It’s not dry but it’s not sticky sweet either. A pretty good beer.
