Don't let the color fool you—this brown beauty may look bold and powerful, but it's remarkably smooth and approachable. Attractive aromas and flavors of caramel malt, toasted wheat, peanut shells, brown banana, clove and a touch of cocoa fill the nose and medium-weight mouth. Although there's a lot going on, it's all harmonious and well-balanced, with medium carbonation and a lightly dry, toasted-grain finish. This will pair remarkably well with hard cheeses, like cheddar or aged Gouda, as well as barbecue chicken and burgers. Iron Horse Beverage.
