12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep Amber with a ruby hue, small foamy white head reduces to a film on top, leaving nothing behind

S- green vegetal aroma up front with some singed brown sugar and toasted bready malt, light grassy and herbal malt

T- vegetal flavor follows the aroma, reminiscent of beef stew. Toasted bread crust malt with some brown sugar notes, grassy and herbal hop finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues to the finish

O- a little off puting at times, but remains pretty drinkable

Rich, full bodied dark amber ale with hints of maple and light citrus. Mild and enjoyable. ABV a bit high but definitely could be a session brew.
