Poured from the bottle into a ghandi-bot tulip.

A: Beautiful dark orange with compact head that dissipates into a very thin ring.

S: Malty, big caramel malts. Beautiful. Yeast and hops are mild and very much in the background.

T: Follows nose and is perfect velvety creamy and very slightly slick on the palate. Roasted honey sweet like notes and some of the hops present as tea-like.

M: creamy, medium full end of the spectrum. finishes with that tea-like note and then goes creamy and sweet but never cloying.

O: very nice and perfect for fall.
