Pours a brilliant amber brown color with a dense half inch cream head that dissipates slowly.
Caramel, toffee, toasted bread, and almonds comprise the aroma, with a hint of floral hops.
Flavor is nutty, slightly sweet, with caramel malt forming the backbone. Floral hops complement the toasted caramel malt character and keep it from becoming cloying. The hops finish the flavor profile with an herbal tone. Rich kettle caramelization surfaces as it warms.
Body is moderate to full, with carbonation on the high side of moderate, keeping the flavor from becoming offputting.
Overall, a fairly malt forward beer that has good malt character and a decent amount if hops to keep it in check. Very drinkable brew.
