Pours opaque brown with a thin tan head that laces like my grandmother if she had practiced better living through chemistry. Smells malty, sweet, with a dark fruity undertone. Tastes woody up front then melts into a delicious sweet molases maltiness with a dry nutmeg-esque finish. NICE! Mouthfeel is well-carbonated and then slippery. Drinkability is fantastic. Not too sweet, not too dry, just out and out de-pour me another-licious.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a medium brown with caramel highlights and minimal cream head that dissipates to almost nothing.
Deep caramelization, melanoidins. Toasted, nutty malt.
Lots of kettle caramelization, slightly sweet melanoidin character. Enough toasted malt to counter the sweetness and nuttiness to finish things out. Slightly bitter finish. A touch of roast and dark cherries.
Body is fairly full with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol warmth.
Nice melanoidin character, not cloyingly sweet, but a bit hot.
Serving type: on-tap
