From the bottle, this poured a hazy, deep brown color with a thick and dense cream colored head. The nose has an up front doughy character followed quickly by a spicy touch that blends quickly with citrus hops. The taste has the spicy character immediately accented by a caramel malt. The doughy character is not present in the flavor. The hops are there, more as an accent than a distinguishable flavor of it’s own. This has a very “layered” character. Smooth, slightly oily mouth feel and a mild alcohol warming lend to a high drinakbility,

This beer pours a dark murky brown with hints of red. This is the best beer I've ever had. It smells great and it tastes great. The aftertaste is even better than the flavor. Very smooth and completely satisfying. Extremely easy to drink and the alcohol is well masked.
