A: Pours a dark amber color with a nice white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.
S: Smells strongly of earthy tones. Notes of oak, berries, nuts and roasted malts.
T: The flavor starts with a roasted malt flavor with hints of nuts. The flavor then moves into a sweeter flavor of some berries and maybe some yeast. The flavor finishes with a slight bittery taste that blends well with the rest of the flavors. Overall, it was complex and enjoyable.
M: Relatively thin beer. Wasn't expecting too much chew to it so I wasn't disappointed.
Overall: Overall the beer was better than I expected. The beer has a great smell and nice complex flavor that moves from roasted flavor to a sweeter flavor and finishes with a nice bitter aftertaste. I definitely recommend trying this beer.
