Deep brown body with a foamy cream head. Not a lot on the nose but a little caramel. Taste is oaty with a nice hint of vanilla to me. Really crisp beer and a nice version of the style. Malt forward without being overtly malty or bready. The carbonation really helps lift the flavors here and carry the malt while making it interesting. It'll sneak up on you at 7.6%.
