Served - bottle into Pint Glass

Appearance
Rich brown color, Dark copper, with 1/4 in head that continues throughout.

Smell
Rich, nutty smell. Hazelnut with rich malts and slight hop scent.

Taste
Can really taste the nuts and the roasted malts. Sort of bitter on the back of the tongue. Orange peel, caramel. The taste really makes this beer.

Mouthfeel
Complex taste of nuts and malts that hits your mouth hard and leaves a bitter hoppy feel on the back of your tongue.

Overall
A great brown ale with an excellent taste. The taste really makes it. The aftertaste on the back of the tongue is complex with the taste of orange peel, roasted malts, nuts, and caramel.
