Dark amber brown, with slight rings of drawn down amber at the edges. From an angle, looking down on it, it looks like a black & tan - amber on the bottom and dark on the top. Thick tan head sits heavy, leaving rings with each drink.
Roasty, chalky, with a distinct nuttiness, akin to roasted hazelnuts. Smells good, if a little muted.
Sitting somewhere between an amber and a light porter, I pick up on two levels of maltiness. There's one that comes through with carbonation on the tongue, with a clean toffee-like malt. A second is roasted and creamy, but aside from the other. Uniquely tasty. Seems like a beer that should be poured from little brown jug.
Good balance between the carbonation and creaminess. Dry, but sticky to close.
Not sure why it's considered a seasonal, but I don't mind it. Good enough to be enjoyed year-round.
