Pours a burnt amber, very clear with an off white head and moderate lacing. This smells very sweet and caramelly. Lots of dark biscuit too, like an overcooked wheat biscuit with a hint of maple syrup. I also get grassy, nectary, earthy hops. The flavor is very malty, too, with overcooked wheat bread, burnt caramel, and pumpernickel. The bitterness is somewhat harsh and earthy. I get some minerals in there, and it lingers a bit. The finish feels dry despite the sweetness of the flavor, the body is middling to light.

Overall, I'd say this isn't a bad beer, but the burnt flavors aren't my thing. Lighten this up a bit and I'd enjoy it a whole lot better.
