Served On-Tap, not at the Brewery

A — Pours a nice lightly hazy caramel hued brown into the glass. There is a khaki colored head that sits atop of the beer and leaves behind some nice and consistent lace.

S — Smells incredibly fresh, malty, and delicious. Chewy malts and grains balanced with an oak-like sweetness.

T — Malty, rich, chewy, delicious. Very malt focused and lightly oak driven, with some vanilla, and caramel character.

M — Medium bodied, long and lingering finish, just want to keep coming back for another sip.

O — So good, just a great highlight of DBA.
