Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, molasses, and candied fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, fruit, earth, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that has a solid smell, but the flavors have a bit of oxidation going on to me.

Serving type: bottle.
