    [Best served in a Snifter]

    Poured a medium murky brown with a very large light brown rocky head that lasted throughout and had superb lacing. The aroma was very pronounced with a tawny wine alcohol scent that gets you right away and also had dark bread malts, a nice resin hop and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of citrus(grapefruit), pineapple and a nice smokey oak. It tasted sweetly acidic and very malty from the onset then progressed into a bitter hoppy flavor with a strong grapefruit presence that had a warming alcohol finish. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and nice and dry yet creamy in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a fantastic ale with tons of flavor, and a complexity that allows you to taste them all.

    Pours a dark reddish brown body sporting a good foamy head which left thick lacing on the sides of the glass while the brew was being enjoyed. A very “citrusy” scent and flavor hit strong at first but as the brew warms, there are scents and flavors of brown sugar, roasted hazelnut (most likely from the oaking process), and loads of hops coupled with subtle undertones of roasted malts. If I were to coin a term to describe either the scent or the flavor it would be ‘complex’. Definitely a great session beer!
