The nose offers orange blossoms and slight spice. On the palate, the caramel maltiness shines strongly but with little sweetness. The profile leans toward dry fruity (yeast-affiliated), slightly fruity/hoppy with a beguiling spiciness. This complex, medium-bodied beer has a smooth mid-palate and moderate dry finish. Well-balanced in all elements, it's a mild, mellow brew.
The ale's flavor profile has a pleasant booziness to it and mild acidity and hops. This combination lends itself to be paired with a rich black truffle and lobster risotto or pork belly and mustard greens. Add it to chili, jambalaya or gumbo to give your dish a pleasant bitterness and roastiness.
