Poured from a 12oz. bottle, no freshness info.

Appearance: Huge tan head, ruby brown body.

Smell: Malty, a bit of peat with caramel.

Taste: Better than aroma with some butterscotch, smoky, caramel, sweet toffee.

Mouthfeel: Silky yet robust maybe slight thinness in finish.

Overall: Really dug the taste, nothing fancy but good.
