Bottle shared at GRG1313’s tasting.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is malt, caramel, toffee, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

This is a older bottle from the 2013 release. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with mahogany hues through out. A soft white head with good retention.

The nose is soft but complex. Malt forward with notes of caramel, malt balls and graham crackers. Some esters with plums and raisins. Some brown sugar notes as well. Very clean and has held up well.

The taste is similar but more expressive. Malt forward but the hops come out vs the nose, which was pretty much non-existent. The malt is noticeable which a great kettle caramel backing and a soft graham cracker note as well. But the esters come out more with a plums and tropical fruit mix. Some minor pineapple but overall clean.

The body is moderate and boarder mod full with the sweetness and fruity ester notes. Overall a pretty good beer with some good age on it.
