Had a small glass to see what the one-off would be.

Appearance: medium to dark chestnut brown.

Aroma: distinct spice and caramel maltiness.

Taste: nice caramel, grain, some hops, and a slightly tingly spiciness.

Mouth: moderate to slightly thin.

Overall: good beer, well done, but not amazing compared to some of HUB's other offerings. But well worth a small glass.

On tap at HUB over lunch.

1-finger creamy brown head over brown body. Sweetish body but too sugary, raisins in the nose. Pretty nice balance of malts and hops, a bit syrupy in texture, but not too much alcohol in the finish. In the end, very drinkable and give the good cause, worth making a trip to sample. Props out to Christian Ettinger and the Eugene crowd for a superlative one-off.
