With a rusty orange shade, Iron Spike Copper pours a thick and frothy cream coloured head. To the nose, caramel malts meet toasted spices with additional notes of chestnut and plum. Tastes of sweet caramel and butterscotch hit the palate first, followed by biscuit graininess, fruit, vanilla, rye, and spices. A nice hop bite comes forward mid-palate and lasts on the tongue. This medium to full-bodied ale is creamy and sweet with a lingering hoppy aftertaste.
