Poured into a glass mug. Pours dark brown with a frothy light tan head. Plenty of bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. The beer is transparent at the ends of the glass, where it is reddish brown. The head dissipates slowly, leaving sticky lacking on the side of the glass. I can pick up smells of dark roasted barley malts and nuts. It reminds me of a good nut bread smell. The taste follows the nose. There's a rich maltiness to this beer from the dark roasted malts and the nuttiness blends well with the malt flavor. I can also pick up some mild toffee and vanilla flavors in this beer as well. The body is medium with plentiful carbonation. For as rich as the beer tastes, the feel is much lighter than the taste. It's slightly watery and very smooth. The drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. It is very refreshing and flavorful. This is a great example of this style.
