Pours a murky brownish orange with a tan head of foam that leaves lace and refreshes with each tip of the glass. Nose is toffee and bread. Crusty bread and caramel. Some brightness form hops int eh nose accents a touch of dark fruit. Figs and earth. If you inhale very deeply you can smell a bit of alcohol on the nose. If you don't you can't . Taste is rich and malty. bread crusts, toasty malt, brown sugar and toffee. Earthiness and those dark fruits that seem to have a surprising freshness. A bit of peat. Some raisin and nuts come to the palate as it warms. Mouthfeel is full. tasty and finishes dry with a slight bitterness. Light bit of warmth from the alcohol.
