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.

Poured from the 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass. Makes sense right?
Big head on Tumbler and very creamy in color and appearance. The head from the side is simple thousands of air bubbles compacted upon each other. The body looks like maple syrup, dark brown with slightly light hues. The head persists for what seems like an hour.
Caramel dominates the nose. Put there's subtle vanilla and slight floral hops. There's a slight hint of coffee too.
There's a nutty quality to the flavors here. But it's also sweet and has toffee, vanilla and caramel flavors. It gets slightly floral towards the finish. Lingering coffee leaves a pleasant taste to enjoy for quite some time.
Creamy, on the lighter side of medium-bodied, and only offering a touch of bitterness.
This beer is just smooth, creamy and easy-drinking but with great flavors. Great beer.
