poured into my BA mug. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick off white heading. Very good lacing.
Smell is malty,kind of bitter with some dark fruit's and some spice hop's.
Taste is very bitter and kind of sour. Dry aftertaste,also kind of yeasty.
Mouth is medium bodied with decent carbonation.
Drink is ok, nothing spectacular but for 6.3% Abv I guess it's average.
I was disappointed with this beer I had high hopes going in but a big letdown in the end.

Cask offering at O’Neal’s Pub. The cask variety adds an element of sourness to the normally bitter nature of this beer. Nice woody, dried fruit aroma, more dried fruit in the taste. This is more of a sipper, bringing to mind dubbels and sours. Nicely done!
