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.

First go at this newish local. On tap at McNellies.

Pours dark amber with some clarity. Has a tan froth. Smells of timid malts followed by the hops and light fruits, all subtle and knowing their place. Tastes grainy up front with fruit and hops following and the bitterness eventually taking over at the very back. Some chalk leftovers and light to medium in body. Nothing special here, but I suppose you have to start somewhere.

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.
