ACBF pour

A-Pours dark brown with a thin, tan head.

S-Fruity yeasty aroma with a brown breadiness and some caramel. Light grassy hoppiness.

T-Dark bread and fruitcake with caramel. Toffee and some apples. Light bitterness from the hops but no specific flavor.

M-Medium bodied. Softer bubbles. Alcohol hidden well. A bit creamy.

O-I've wanted to try this beer for some time. It turned out to be a tasty beer. This is one I would like to reexamine at some point.

Imagine a cross between shiner and guiness and you get this amazing beer

Color is a deep brown with a slightly earthy sweet smell. The taste is a sweet raisin and toasted malt rich flavor, with traces of citrus behind the two main flavors and a nice heavy but smooth finish
