04/05/13 On tap (nitro). Usual smoothness from most nitro pours. Extremely light body but not watery. Aroma is subtle & indicative of the shy flavor profile. Nice balance of sweet & bitter. No hint of the contemporary adds of vanilla/coffee/chocolate, etc. Listings show conflicting ABV but this tastes shy so I'll assume it's @ 4.5%. If that's the case I could see this as a pleasant session companion.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz nitro-can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin short very dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts, chocolate, some honey and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a little bit of smokiness that is quickly followed by a hearty but not too heavy roasted malt character. Then some flavors of chocolate, coffee, honey and dark fruit come in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp but a bit watery, medium body, light carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Serving type: nitro-can
