The beer comes in a copper brown color.
The aroma has sweet caramel, a woodiness, a bit of spice, maybe even some citrus.
The flavor is overwhelming of bitterness with a bit oaf rich deep dark caramel and toffee. The bitterness is of wood chips, wet tobacco, and some bite.
It has a nice full creamy mouthfeel.
Overly bitter and one note.

Been looking to try this for almost a year! 22 oz bottle, about 5 weeks fresh, poured into Vault Brewing Co tulip.
Pours a copper, brown opaque dark body, with a decent of head light cream color which sticks around a while with decent lacing.
I honestly can't smell much on this beer. Some pale spiced malts, a little nutty, but honestly not a whole lot. Not offensive, just not aromatic.
Taste is interesting... Malty spicy backbone, not a lot of hops, mildly bitter, alcohol is noticeable. Kind of bland to be honest.
Mouthfeel is a heavy medium, smooth, low-medium carbonation, sticky finish.
Overall, I wasn't impressed with this, was really hoping for it to be better. Drinkable but average.

Pours a brilliant reddish brown color with a decent sized creamy off white head that shows moderate retention and a fair amount of lace. An almost artificial smelling fruity nose with lots of grape, cherry, and tangerine. Brown sugar, caramel and hints of yeast esters play supporting roles. Little to no hop aroma. The flavor is quite complex actually. Sweet and sugary up front mixed with grape dimetapp and a hint of wet cardboard. A hint of earthy hop flavor mixed with a bit of alcohol comes through next as do some quad like yeasty flavors. Lingering dark sugar drizzled cherries long after each sip. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. Odd brew for sure, it took me a bit to figure it out, and it was somewhat drinkable. Probably wouldn't seek out again, but glad to try it.
