I transfered this to secondary over the weekend. Here's my preliminary impression from a small sample, color is light brown, dark amber. Overall, it is very smooth. A little spicy, a little malty, starts slightly fruity with supporting malt character and a very tiny bit hoppy, dry on the finish. I can't wait to get this carbonated.

Kegged this over the weekend. It dropped gravity a couple of points during secondary. Still very good.
