A medium-sized, tan, bumpy, active head. A deep copper clear beer. Candy floss nose, grape juice, some cheesy hops. Fruity and nutty in front. Fairly full in the middle. Some deep malt hints at chocolate. Grapey finish! Quite bitter. Some roasted nuts. A touch of sour grossness. A decent session ale.

BBD 6/4/14. Pours a clear amber with a good head. Lacing and retention are normal. Nice subtle nose of orange, caramel malt and spice over a nice subdued mineral note. Magnificent heavy medium body that is creamy and better than many stouts. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. Well balanced and somewhat complex flavor profile. It begins with an orange and spice note which then flows into a moderate bitterness. Towards the end, the sweet caramel malt shines. It finishes with an effervescent burst that is slightly citric and tart, leaving you with a nice lingering low level bitterness over a mineral note. Not as bitter as I expected, it is; however, quite outstanding.
