This pours a reddish-brown color, with glimmers of copper when held up to the light. The carbonation looks moderately aggressive from the outset, though the head doesn't linger long. Caramel, brown sugar, toasted malt and brown-bread aromas lead the nose, while the palate offers fruit-driven flavors of baked apple, dried cherry and raisin that flesh out the malty core. It's medium-full in the mouth, with lifting carbonation and hints of grassy hops that linger on the lightly bitter finish. Iron Horse Beverage LLC.
