Amber copper color. It made a good deal of off-white thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice aroma of bready malts, caramel and floral hops.
Very interesting flavor with its own character, hints of caramel, wood, tangerine and peach. Malty but also parfumy and hoppy (especially considering its style). Dry and long lasting bitter aftertaste.
Smooth medium body with low carbonation.
Great beer with a personality of its own. Highly recommended.

Very awesome beer, a bold beer with very big flavors. I am a homebrewer, but I still have trouble being able to tell what it is about some beers... this is one of those. Very malty, taste like part of the malt protiens did not convert to simple sugars for fermentation. Thats not a bad thing, the flavor is great ... I'm just not sure if that is even it, whatever it is, it works!

4.16/5  rDev +5.3%

Appearance: Semi deep copper-amber with two fingers very light tan head

Aroma: Malts forward. Sweet and bready malts. Some hops. A very faint fruity smell.

Taste: Tasty sweet and lightly toasted bready malts. Light toffee flavor. Light hops.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is excellent. Very smooth. Median bodied and carbonation. Bitterness is light. Combination of malt and hops in the finish. Finish is clean as well.

Overall: Certainly a hearty brew for sure. Nice balance. I have never had this style before, but I did enjoyed Dead Guy Ale.
