Tap beer at brewpub stored in can two days before drinking.

Pours dark copper with a thin head that becomes a wide island. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of caramel/nougat and peat. It has a rich malt character aroma.

The taste is of caramel/toffee/nougat (hint of chocolate?). Peat smoke balances sweetness without overwhelming. Pretty long finish. Alcohol very well-covered.

It hits full-bodied. Carbonation a bit aggressive at the start, but soon relaxes.

A rich, malty brew with a nice touch of peat smoke character. Enjoyable!

At their Wausau pub. Although the look and feel are good, it's about the taste. There is an odd back smell/taste to the smell and taste, as if the grains aren't stored properly. Thus picking up punky woody taste. But this could be the yeast. If so and it may be since their s-bahn (Munich lager)was similar, they need to restart their yeast program.
