Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance- The beer is poured a deep brown color with some mahogany highlights shining through. With the pour there is a big cream colored head that has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to give a fantastic level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma is heaviest of roasted malt, coffee and some aroma of a herbal and earthy hop smell Mixed with these smells are lighter notes of a chocolate and caramel smell.
Taste –The flavor starts out with a nice blend of roasted malt and some sweeter caramel and toffee flavors. The roasted taste remains constant with some hop flavors coming to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste A stronger chocolate and nut flavor as well as a light earthy hop flavor come to the tongue more toward the end of the and when mixed with the roasted flavors it leaves a nice crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is a little above average for a brown beer. The creamier of the beer is rather nice for the roasted flavors but the carbonation level may be a bit high.
Overall –A tasty brew being rather crisp for a brown beer without being overly sweet, and yet still maintaining some nice roasty and cocoa flavor.
