Very much like Ithaca Cascazilla but with the added buttery goodness of Magic Hat. A great deep orange amber caramel with a off white fine lacing cream head. Bitter green spruce hops on the nose amongst the maltiness. Cherry, black tea, raisin with plenty of graininess and that dairy tang.
A solid entry in the never ending contest for beer you may want to have kicking around more often. A respectable five point eight.
Big big BA props.
If diacetyl is wrong, I don''t wanna be right.
