3.5/5 rDev -3.3%
Sampling right now on 4/29/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler. Poured into a vintage "Schlitz" pilsner glass.
Pours a pretty amber in color with a small off-white head that lasts a while. A good amount of lacing is seen and stays around. The aroma is of hops, citrus and chocolate malt. The taste which has a lot going on with roasted malts, caramel, citrus and some spice. A slightly dry and bitter finish but drinkable.

4/5 rDev +10.5%
Appearance: pours a 1" off white head that slowly recedes with some lacing. Amber color with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: rich aroma of yeast rolls, pungent earthy hops, some caramel and raisins.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and a bit sticky with a pleasant finish.
Flavor: complex combination of bread dough, sweet caramel and toffee, fruity raisin, significant bitter earthy hops and with a slight astringent alcohol burn in the finish.
Overall: a pleasant sipper on a cold winter day and appropriate to the style.
