Reviewed from notes taken in tavern.
S: Heavy nutty malts and woody grainy hops.
T/M: Heavy nutty roasted malts and wood. Medium bodied with a tad bit of carbonation, raisins, figs and sweet breads. Dry grainy alcohol finish.
O: Unfortunately I was a little stopped up the day I tried this. That being said I was impressed with this ale and I will try this again as soon as I can. I really enjoyed the well balance and smooth flavors that this ale had to offer.
Serving type: on-tap

App- Pours a dark amber with a 1 to 1.5 inch head. The beer is clear, and lacing is substantial through the glass. A very appealing beer.
Smell- Musty and Malty, a bit of roasty character in there as well. Sweetness of the malt, and a bit of hops there as well.
Taste- Alcoholic warmth is present accompanied by some dark fruits and the aftertaste is one of earthiness and alcohol. Has a good long lingering taste.
MF- A bit creamy, thick, not too high on the carbonation. Appealing.
Overall, the beer is well balanced, but then again nothing particularly stands out as amazing from it, except for it being the only bee i've given a perfect "appearance" score to...Everything I looked for was there.
