12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

Appearance: Maroon/brown body topped by a two-finger head of dark white frothy foam, which dwindles to a full cap of foam. Slightly hazy but very effervescent body with carbonation racing to the top of the glass. Head leaves behind some sticky and splotchy lacing. A great looking brown ale.

Aroma: Roasted malt smells with toffee and caramel in the mix as well. There's also a very slight nutty and chocolate note as well. Earthy and herbal hops cut through the sweetness for balance. Very malt-forward beer, much different than most SN beers. Definitely smells like fall!

Taste: Nice notes of roasted malt on the forefront of the tongue, with caramel and a slight nutty flavor working their ways in on the middle of the palate. Some earthy/herbal, slightly astringent hops finish out before a chocolatey flavor, with a flash of baked bread, finishes out the beer. Some smokey notes emerge in the finish as the beer warms. Very well-balanced and wonderfully crafted. Excellent stuff.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with soft carbonation, like most beers by Sierra Nevada. Leaves a lingering finish of chocolate sweetness and some smoke. Very smooth beer, perfect for sessions. (I think so, anyway...)

Overall: A fantastic fall seasonal. For a "standard" beer category, Sierra Nevada does a great job staying within guidelines while not compromising on flavor. Definitely find this beer if you like more malt-forward brown ales. Smooth, drinkable, and relaxed. Great for autumn afternoons and evenings.
