Pours a soapy, tand head that has fantastic persistence and lacing. Fantastic aroma of bread dough and grassy hops. Brown, burnt sienna color. Starts with a rich, deep flavor; toasted malt, booze, slight hop bitterness. This actually is very reminiscent of Kvass. Finish is grainy hop bitterness over toasted malt with biscuit wafting back in.

This is really fantastic. I really, really dislike Quads, and this is delightful. Again, it's similar to Kvass, and so I'm really digging it.
