Draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is dark brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma is fabulous. Vanilla, chocolate, malt, bread, a touch of booze. The taste is so smooth and easy going, it's hard to believe the aroma can be so powerful. Gene and I both marveled over the bold and assertive quality of the beer despite it's low abv. The power of an imperial brown ale or barleywine with session-like drinkability. Great stuff.

Served on-tap at Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a clear dark brown in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation and some dark reddish amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of nutty malts and toasted dark malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted dark malts with some light hints of fruity sweetness and some nutty flavors as well. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish that only lingers for a short amount of time.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A very good example of the style and very enjoyable with all of the nutty flavors and aromas. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

On-tap at Iron Monkey, Jersey City, NJ

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of nutty malts along with slight hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked how this beer was packed with aromas and flavors of nutty malts. It is a very good representation of the style.
