Brilliant amber with copper tones and a frothy khaki head that dissipates to a thin foam.
Nutty, toasted, sweet caramel and biscuit malt dominates, with resin, floral hops, and grapefruit countering. There's a hint of onion.
Flavor reveals a nutty, deeply toasted backbone, slightly sweet, which finishes fairly bitter and a touch burnt. Grapefruit surfaces initially, but malt sweetness wins, carrying into s light resiny finish. There's a biscuity character up front, accompanied by light chocolate notes.
Body and carbonation are moderate.
Fairly complex beer. The malt character is extremely varying, and the hops play against it well. It's somewhat of a mystery brew. Can't decide if I love it or not.
