3.4/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Pours a clear dark red-brown with a two-finger off white head of mixed size bubbles. Leaves rings of sticky lacing.

S - Smells malty, but definitely a grainy sort of malty as opposed to sweet. Some nuttiness, and a hint of charcoal.

T - Taste matches the aroma exactly. Not sweet at all. Very bitter, almost astringent. Grainy malts forward, with a bit of herbal hop appearing in the finish. Hints of tobacco and walnut. Good, but not very complex.

M - Light-to-medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Slightly drying finish.

O - A decent brown ale but I found it to be kind of blandly bitter and one-dimensional. Honestly, I couldnt imagine drinking a six pack of this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a chilled tulip glass.

-Appearance 3.5: Poured out a pleasant dark brown color. 1/2 inch, cream-colored head quickly faded and left nice foamy trails all over the top. Little carbonation bubbles viewable all over the sides of the beer.

-Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet of hops, barley and caramel. Very subdued.

-Taste 4.0: Front is slightly sour. Mid-level hop hit and barley wave in the middle. Finish has slight caramel hints and more of the barley, along with a cocoa powder flavor that is unexpected and lovely. Finish is delicious: pleasing alkaline hops balanced with a deep tannin flavor. Aftertaste is dry but long at the same time with more of the hoppiness.

-Mouthfeel 4.0: Good carbonation level that enhances the flavor of this brew.

-Overall 4.0: A satisfying beer that would be excellent as a session beer. Great on its own, but would go well with food and crudites. That's right, I typed "crudites." Regardless, this is one of the few "mego micro" seasonals that is worth picking up every time it comes out.
