On tap at the Holy Grail Pub.

The beer pours a dark reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is excellent. I get a lot of chocolate with some peat notes. I also get some toffee and maple notes which compliment the other aromas very well. The flavor is also very nice. The main flavor is a chocolate and toffee malt mixture. I also get some vanilla, peat smoke and maple notes from the oak aging. The alcohol is detectable and the beer is very easy to drink. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation. An outstanding beer.

Took my first trip up to Hops and Pies in the Highland neighborhood of Denver, because a friend told me they had this one on tap.
Poured from the tap a medium to dark brown with a nice cap of off-white foam on top. Aromas of caramel, roasted nuts, light peat smoke and dark fruit. On the palate this one is fairly full-bodied, with a little peat, some oak, dark fruit, chewy malt and alcohol.
