4.25/5 rDev +11.5%
Pours deep dark garnet-brown with a significant creamy tan head
Aroma is light, malty and yeasty notes primarily.
Flavor is an amazing roasty toasty alcohol fueled mess. Sweetness is highly notable, perfectly balanced to the hoppy/roasty side. A little spice from the Goldings. Not terrifically complex, but a masterfully done biggish beer.
Body is robust, approaching the imperial stout range.
Far bigger beer than most browns, bordering on the imperial stout realm... not as black and balanced a little dryer. I'm kicking myself that I bypassed this one as often as I have in the past... damn good beer at an excellent price point.

I think this beer is very understated. It starts out with hop notes and then complexly traverses an earthy porter finish. It is a fresh beer that could be drank year round as it is fresh, but also dark and could be appreciated in the winter time after a day working outside or by the campfire.
