Served from a bottle into a pint glass. 1/26

Pours medium reddish brown, ruby colored, light layer of white foam. Bready toffee caramel nose. A little sweet. Taste is a light bread filled malt with a firm flavorful hop in the back half. Good flavor blend. Slightly amped ESB.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle -> snifter glass

A - deep amber pour with a big four inch head which is light brown in appearance.

S - weak nose, mostly malt and bread

T - some honey, lemon, and orange peel with a bitter finish that is about the same flavor as the corky bitter stuff that can be found inside a pecan (prounced PEE-kahn)

M - medium thickness, bit of an aftertaste

O - decent offering. I'd drink another one.
