Pours a dark amber-copper color with a slight haze and an off-white head that leaves nice lacing behind once it falls. The bouquet is enticing, with rich toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and sweet hop oil aromas that carry through to the palate. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, maintaining balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Delicious now, but shows potential as a great cellar candidate.
