Thanks altonbrownd for the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered caramel brown with quickly dissipating brown leather colored foam. The nose shows a lot of sweet malts. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of a lot of sweet malt with a light tea astringency finishing on a lightly sharp IPA bitterness.
