Smells especially nice, very bready and sweet, with caramel and dates as well. Pours a nice medium to dark brown, light carbonation and head. Tastes fresh and clean. Not heavy but also not at all weak or flavorless. Just a solid, drinkable beer. Would do well with spicy or salty meat.

I came across this beer by accident. I was in the Growler and Grill in NY and they had this on tap and in bottles. I purchased some bottles and the beer was well balance, smooth and tasted good. The tap version of the beer was as smooth virtually identical as the bottle version. For me this was just the perfect beer. Amongst the best I have ever tasted. Personally I am into dark beer and not the hoppy type. I hope this helps. Great beer!!
