Rather surprising for something poured out of a clear bottle. White frothy head that makes a stage left exit the moment you turn your back. Cloudy rich amber hue, with an aroma of carmelized butter toffee, a touch of burnt malts. Possesses a butter toffee taste followed by a bitter/sour one. Difficult to tell whether the latter is due to hops, or being light-struck from the clear bottle, or a hint of preservatives. An ale that starts out strong but begins losing its character farther down the glass. Would prefer to try this one on tap.
