Had this at the brewery during a pleasant evening with some good food the brewery went back to that allowed them to open up like a respectable restaurant during the current troubles.

This nice malty brown ale went well with the tuna, yes tuna, nachos. A decent beer, maybe a bit more flavor and a bit more substantial feel would be preferred, but I would get it again.

32 oz. half growler filled at Blackwater Draw and poured into a BWD tight nonic
(half growler sat in the fridge about five hours before first pour)

L: mostly clear red ... at first as red as the cap on a red Sharpie, closer inspection shows some dark orange/brown in it for a more coppery red look, but this one is loaded with red; pushes up super thick and sticky head of beige foam; keeps most of a collar, not much skin, laces a little; may clear up a little over time but always has a slight mistiness to it

S: roasted malt ... lightly charred wood, pecan and oak, and sweet hints of vanilla; first whiff had bourbon in it, but that disappears and leads to the much sweeter vanilla; at times there's so much wood aroma it's like standing over a cord of freshly chopped pecan or oak near a barbecue pit ... super woody; as it warms, gets very sweet at times, pecan pie sweet or even a cinnamon roll; coffee

T: toasted wood, loads of oak and pecan wood, slight pecan pie sweetness and pecan flavor, but the dominant note is char-wood from the dark/toasted malt; slight peat flavor at times ... very earthy, not necessarily bitter but the wood flavor seems to bleed into peat/earth range; espresso or coffee

F: super soft, ale slick, almost fluffy drinking through the thick creamy head; as you get into the glass, it keeps the soft/slick feel but has a bit more crispness, especially midswallow

O: great brew, loaded with dark/toasted malt flavor and with an aftertaste as good as it gets; the amount and power of the woodlike notes are strong, perhaps a bit too much for some, but while they might get a bit earthy, they never get overly bitter
