A-Pours a clear, brown with crimson hue. Head is tan and well muscled, but it dies off to a thin sheath. Light lacing curtains.
S-Yum. Lots of toffee and caramel. Sweet maple syrup almost. Maybe even some root beer. Lightly nutty. Eccentric sweetness, but when you dissect the nose, it is fairly complicated…and attractive.
T-The flavor is roaster than the nose. Light cocoa, toffee, molasses and a bunch of caramel. Light cola/root beer. A light grassiness with grain. Nuttiness is subdued but it comes into play with a bit of hazelnut. Toasted bread. Flavorful and the finish is long.
M-Light, sessionable feel. Prickly carbonation. Goes down crisp and is a bit dry.
O/D-Nice brew. Didn't strike me as 'awesome'. Still, plenty fine. Wouldn't buy it again. A decent time however.
