Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance –Pours a hazy deep copper, almost brown color. Upon pouring there is a fizzy off white head that initially fades fast to leave a persistent white foam head on the brew.
Smell – The aroma is overall very light. It consists of some roasted malt, a little bit of nuttiness and light caramel aroma.
Taste – The flavor starts out an interesting blend of darker fruits, a bready flavor, as well as some caramel sweetness. As the taste advances further some roasted and nut flavors come to the tongue. As the flavor advances to the end, the bready flavors begin to fade, but some of the fruit flavors get quite a bit stronger and in the end a nice lightly roasted and sweet flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer has a moderate amount of creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are quite nice for the roasted, dark fruit, nut and bready flavors and really enhance them.
Overall – The nice flavors, drinkability, and good smooth transitions of the brew make for a great one to go out and try (and try again).
