On tap at the Draught House.

The beer pours an orange to dark amber color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of grainy notes, as well as some light oak-aged notes. The flavor is considerably more oaky, but the grain and biscuit notes still come through quite strongly. The beer is very malty and the alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
