12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Very dark brown with just a hint of reddish hues. Small but resilient creamy beige head and full lacing.
Moderate toasted and caramel malts, roasted nuts, chocolate, coffee, and just a tiny bit of citrus in the background.
Flavor is full of malts, but not ridiculously sweet, and lacks the vinegar/acidity of a lot of browns out there. Somewhat fruity, caramel, light hop bitterness, and toast.
Medium-bodied and medium carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.
I'm not a huge brown fan, but this one was pretty good and I try to keep style in mind when rating. Overall this is a nice late-fall/early-winter beer when I'm not quite in the mood for a heavier stout/porter or anything too spiced.
