Pours a dark clear brown with ruby highlights.
Nice puffy sand colored cap lasts and laces well.
Aromas are inhibited but pleasant : roasty nutty maltiness over some grassy hops..clean smelling.
Moderate body chewy mouth feel, roasty-toast-nutty character.
Front side is malt forward you get roast and toastiness some nut-like tones all well balanced with a sturdy pleasing hop bitterness...finish remains roasty-toast with good hop balance then a quick dry bitter end, Very pleasant, very rounded, balanced and finished. Like a porter with more pale malt instead of caramalt or crystal. Very drinkable...a dark sessioner.

Pours a dark brown with thin tan head that dissipated quickly. Smell is very subtle, a bit of roasted malt. Some roasted chocolate taste, with mild bitterness. Nice carbonation level and I could drink several of these. Nothing really great here, but it still is pleasant enough.
