4.25/5 rDev +10.7%
Appearance- Dark brown, mahogany, and a red amber hue. Pours a one finger white colored head.
Aroma- Sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Taste- For the most part this follows the nose closely. Sweet malts dominate this beer, but the hops provide enough of a presence to make this perfectly balanced. On the front end big caramel malts flavors burst on the tongue followed by a slight citrus hop presence. At the end the caramel malt is accompanied by cinnamon and spice that glaze the tongue. Slight roasted nut flavors give balance to the sweetness as well.
Feel- Crisp snap of carbonation on the front end, and creamy smoothness throughout.
Overall- I can see why people miss this beer, but I wasn't expecting to love this one. Easily the best brown ale I've had with amazing balance and flavor. Literally the perfect amount of sweetness I'd like in a beer. Definitely a must try for the Fall beer list.
