3.53/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Light amber with a one finger, creamy, off white head that appears to lace well. Lots of carbonation even minutes after the pour. This almost has the appearance of a dark cider
S: Toasty malt, caramel and an unexpected alcohol note. Hops are mild but certainly there.
T: Mostly malt, it's fairly smooth but has a light body. Nut flavor holds the middle together and bittering hops finish. Not too much complexity
M: Light bodied and slightly creamy, this is an easy drink. The finish is dry and to the point. The carbonation helps the finish
O: Again, this isn't a complex beer but it's a good selection. Straightforward malt and hop combo

3.76/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Clear, deep reddish-amber body adorned with a moderate, somewhat coarse, and persistent off-white head, with scattered, Belgian-style lacing, and slight carbonation.
Aroma: Prominent toasted malt, with strong caramel and distinct fruit notes, and a somewhat spicy and smoky character.
Taste: Opens with dark caramel, toasted malt, and slightly spicy hops. As the taste progresses, strong black bread notes appear. Later in the taste, a nutty character appears, quite pleasant against the abundant caramel. Finishes with a lingering note of burnt caramel, smoky malt, and grassy hops.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly full, pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A pleasing, well-balanced example, which deserves to be a year-round offering.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
