Pours a deep toasted golden color or a light brown. The pale khaki head is fluffy and slowly settles into a solid cap. Nice webby lacing on the glass.

The aroma seems a bit stunted, not very strong. I pick up some deep caramel notes and some toffee. Pineapple notes from the hops. Sweet aroma.

The flavor has more of a malt presence. Toasted grains with caramel sweetness. Toasted brown bread. A spicy herbal hop flavor, perhaps some pineapple. Fusel alcohol pops through in the finish.

The feel is light with prickly carbonation. Sweet on the palate but the carbonations keeps things fairly crisp though a touch sticky in the finish. The ABV is noticable and not all that pleasant.

A strong toasted ale. It has a nice bready flavor but the alcohol presence dampens the beer for me. Solid.
