When you find beer like this it almost rates itself!
Pours a whisky brown with a foamy 2-3 finger dense head. Lace curtains the walls of the Grindstone pint glass. Malt Hop and Yeast combined perfection! Aroma hints of its mellow roasted malts and Goldings earthy hops. As great as it smells it tastes even better. Caramel malt that is so chewy and luscious full body that mingles with Willamette hop bitterness and sweet malt flavor. Well worth the 90 Shillings.
The more I analyze this beauty then more I edit my 4.5 ratings to 5s
Never buy less that 6 of these unless you are sharing with friends.

Had this on tap at the MT. Dragon in Snow Mass last weekend. yummy
Poured tofee/mahogany color wit great clarity. Off white hed kept a 1/4" tight head all the way down with very good lacing
Smell: Fruitiness with fruitcake/bready notes
Taste: Rich fruitiness with slight bitterness on the back of the tounge and throat. Sweet caramel, slight hint of smokiness/dryness and alcohol mix well in the finish
Chewy/yet silky smooty, awesome balance, super carbonation
If I could get this on tap, this would be a front runner amongst my session choices. Good in the bottle, but was almost like a different beer on tap. Tastes more like a scotch ale on draft, Highly reccomended

Copper color, touch of haze. Lots of small bubble rising to the top. Thick creamy head.
Faint aroma. I smell some bready, caramel and fruity.
Rich, bready, deep caramel, toasty, hint of toffee. Slight fruity. Hop bitterness is moderate, herbal-leafy, tea like. Finish is dry, yet very clean. Medium bodied, very smooth, refreshing.
It's a world class beer!!

12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. Tight finger width head that gradually recedes to a solid film on the surface. The lacing paint the inside of the glass with each sip. Color is a bright copper with brilliantly dancing carbonation.
Smell is a rich toasted biscuit with mild herbal hops in the back. Taste is the definition of balanced. The toasty malts swirl around the herbal and slightly citric malts. Not one over shadows the other but both compliment each other perfectly. Slight hints of honeysuckle and mint edge things out.
Mouthfeel is mild and crisp. A bit of tartness and finishes clean. It's been a while since I've visited this beer, and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long.
