Excellent but not a lot to say.

The commercial description gives you an idea what you are in for. There are many subtle complexities in the malt and hops that give this a really unique taste. I can't really begin to describe it, but it's caramels, breads, aromatic fruits and some bitter.

By far the best of the style I've ever tasted. It might even be the best beer I've tasted. It's not the greatest to eat with due to it's complex hoppiness in the finish.
