      Package: draught
      Place: at the brewery

      Overall Impression (3)
      Bright red-brown, fairly high carbonation, moderate head. Malty, toasty, sweet aroma, with some herbal hops. Big body, fizzy. Hugely malty, toasty, and even woody. Big bitterness starts in the middle and lingers. Big hoppy bitter finish is marred by excessive sweetness. Warming at the very end. This was my one and only beer here.
