This beer poured a very dark amber-brown with some reddish highlights. The thin head filmed over after only a few sips. The aroma is wonderful – Musty, floral and bittersweet with a strong accent on the aroma hops. It says this beer is aggressively hopped with Northern Brewer and Centennial hops. Boy, they aren’t kidding! Seems like there’s a boatload of them in this beer. This is like no other brown ale I have ever tasted. The flavor yields a pleasant floral bitterness with the tang of caramel sweetness. The beer is light to medium bodied, rich and creamy.

The hops control the show here, leading all the way, while the toffee malt sweetness finishes in a close second. The hops leave a bitter hint of unripe cherries on the tongue. This is a sweet brown ale that’s ultra flavorful and highly enjoyable. It’s nice to try something that doesn’t really taste like anything you’ve had before.

Serving type: on-tap
