Pours a dark reddish brown in color. There's about a half inch of head that forms on the pour, but is quickly gone and leaves nothing but a white ring around the top of the glass.
Smell is all malts. Just a little bit of hops and you can notice just a hint of alcohol as well.
Taste is huge caramel malts, but a surprisingly large amount of smoke and peat. Thin to medium in mouthfeel. A little amount of carbonation. Fairly enjoyable and easy to drink.
Serving type: bottle

Looks like the brownish sludge on the side of a Cleveland road after a snowplow.. a 1.5" 'stadium mustard' head(to boot)..poured in the cellar at the brewery for mantrip. Consensus among the guys as our fave current seasonal of the bunch(also had ipl, milkstout, american ale, erie monster, Wright pils.. as well their mainstays).
Looks ominous. Smell of banana, lemon, and sourdough bread.
Taste is lots of banana too with a bang of sour yeast esters... . Balanced though. A slight sweetness n the finish too. Mint alcohol late. Belies its 8% though.. For sure. Tastes like A 6.5-7% brew. Extremely pleased.
Airy. Frothy. Heat, but not 'boozy'.. At least for 8.0. Tred lightly, but it will be difficult.
This is a great beer from a great brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
