Had it on tap at the brewpub and had to take a crowler home. Poured into nonic pint. Reddish gold in color with a finger of head. Quick dissolve, not much in the way of lacing. Aroma is roasted pistachios, grains, and sweet biscuity malts. Flavor is sweet and creamy, but also toasty with pistachios, which also add an earthiness. The feel is both creamy and gritty or dusty, I can't decide. There's so much going on in the glass and in a good way, both individually and together as a whole.

Watery and thin. A bit salty Perhaps. No real malt that lingers or satisfies. Not creamy as I expected
