Smooth, easy-drinking, quite enjoyable and I love the dog on the label. Jewel-tone brown; smells of nuts, malt. Taste follows suit with the addition of caramel and mango. Medium mouth feel, overall delicious.

12 oz. Bottle
Bottled On: Jan 2016

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden brown color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, sweet, kinda wheaty, caramel. The taste is malty, sweet, kinda wheaty, with some caramel. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.
