look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
A: Great reddish brown with a cream-white head that is super thick and lacing all the way down the glass
S: big aroma of fresh baked breads with some really nice semi-sweet chocolate notes in there. There is a malty sweetness in the smell
T: There is rich maltiness right off the bat that's quickly followed by a variety of chocolate covered fruits. There are subtle dark fruit flavors (prune, raison) but I am getting a good dose of grape fruit in here as well. The entire palate is also filled with a biscuity backbone from the likely british pale malt base grain. This is a very complex beer. Although, admitidely, the description sounds odd, it works very well
M: A bit thin, but that lends itself to some serious drinkability. Very good dry finish that leaves the palate wanting more.
D: As noted above, this is top quality on the drinkability scale. World-class example of the style. Best nut brown I've had, hands down!
