Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, amber-brown coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of roasted caramel and toffee, with hints of coffee in the backbone, too. Flavors are a toffee and coffee blend forward, with a bittersweet balance throughout. Smooth and light bodied, with a richly sweet and roasted aftertaste. The flavor is smooth and sweet. Solid, simple, balanced, well crafted brew.

On tap at Bearden Beer Market in Knoxville.

Hazy, dark amber color with thin tan head. Prominent bread, roasted malt aroma with mold floral hops. Taste is reacted malts with caramel, fruity sweetness balanced by mild bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation. Very mild ethanol warmth.

Overall a great ESB, very smooth with strong, sweet malt.
