This brew isn’t cloudy (as it should be) even when poured aggressively, and wears a dark brown color with a rocky, tan crown. Overripe plums dominate the aroma; the expected banana and clove aromas are noticeably absent. The flavor also departs from the style, with harsh, deep toasted malts and only subtle caramel sweetness. What the brew lacks in complexity is made up for in the toasted malt character, which lasts deep into the aftertaste. This light-bodied brew finishes clean with mild peppery spice.
