Pours dark brown with large bubbled white head.
Nose seems somewhat off to me. It has dark fruits, maybe a suggestion of vegetables or mushroom. I can't decide if this "funkiness" is supposed to be there or if I received a bad bottle.
The taste is fine, which leads me to think it is supposed to be this way. Sweet and sour with some fruit and a velvetty smooth texture. Carbonation rolls well at the end on the finish, and again a very smooth quality impresses well.
Only detracting feature is the somewhat funky nose.

05/08/07- Growler fill at the Big Sky Brewery in Missoula, MT.
Presentation- Growler fill from the tap.
Appearance- Liquified caramel color. Lots of micro fine yeast sediment. 1/4 inch creamy head which settles at a fine rim. Light streaky lacing.
Smell- Lots of dark fruits in the nose with a large caramel malt character. Prunes, raisins and figs. Great nose.
Taste- The nose knows! Like a caramel smoothie with fruit. Caramello base with a roasted nutty flavor. Lots of prunes. plums, raisins, figs and dates. Liquid caramel fruitcake is what we have here.
Mouthfeel- Fuller mouthfeel with a creamy and silky texture. Really low carbonation. Almost cask like.
Drinkability- Another excellent output from Big Sky! Not sure of the abv because they wouldn't divulge it. 8.7% at max though by Montana law.
Serving type: growler
