On tap at McNellie's OKC. Pours a clear reddish brown with a slight creamy ivory head. Not much of an aroma, but there are notes of malt, caramel and dark fruit. On the tongue, you can detect some nice chocolate, leather, smoke and a touch of prune. Medium oily mouth that lets the bitterness linger for a while. I don't typically drink a lot of bitters, but this one is really good despite the lack of aroma.

Draft/pint glass

A: 1 finger tan head. Fell to thick, patchy lace. Clear brown body.
S: Toasted malt & toffee.
T: The malts from the nose are here, but they get pushed around a bit by wonderfully bitter, leafy hops.
S: Medium- body. Soft carbonation. Smooth.
O: Really nice mix of flavors. Goes down easily. Really good stuff.
