One of the NB/Elysian collaboration series. Served in goblet. Poured a barely translucent brown, with some reddish tint, and an inch of medium tan head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma had a nice touch of horse blanket funk and tang over the top of a nice grain base. The flavors didn't quite reach the bar that the aromas set. The funk was subdued, the grains soft and the sourness wasn't quite what I was hoping for.

The body was nice, full and smooth, without being heavy or sticky. Overall, a nice little brew that I'm glad I got a chance to try. I think this was a one-off, but if you do see it, consider it a must try.
