Balanced and easy-drinking, this is a nice warm-up to the style that's sure to impress. Pours an almost black color with a thick, frothy tan-colored head that shows good staying power. The smooth and friendly aromas of roasted grain, soft caramel and a touch of fresh shaved tree bark mingle with vibrant pine and earthy hop elements. Full and dusty in the mouth with a cocoa-flavored finish.
