look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured a dark copperish ruby color. Small amount of head formation, I believe this to be my fault I should hme have poured more aggresively. Top notch though, has the appearance one comes to expect from a brown ale not a very light porter or stout that as seems to be the tradition with some other brews of this style.
Smell: rich and malty with some fruity berry and nut undertones. The berry reminds me of something like strawberry. Back, really far back, I detect some hop bitterness.
Taste: incredible and complex. Very clean at first with a definite nut character coming into play I think I detect hazlenut, however I could be wrong. I taste something akin to grape somewhere as well. Some caramel notes as well as roasted malt is apparent as well. It is balanced with a definite lean towards malt only a small amount of bitterness is present.
Mouthfeel: Clean and refreshing, a tad heavy and perhaps overbearing at times though. I feel that if it had a bit more hop character I would give it a 5. Overall though it leaves you quenched and reflective.
Drinkability: I love this beer! I could go for another couple. The only thing that I can possibly criticize would be the formidible sweetness within.
