Poured into a snifter.
A : With a vigorous, gulping pour it can produce a nice finger side tan head, but settles quickly to a soft top fuzz. It's a very, very dark brown (in dim light, black) that doesn't really stand out.
S : A small hint of booze with brown sugar notes and caramel. Weak in potency.
T : Alcohol is there, but not disgustingly so. The brown sugar and caramel from the smell are playful throughout. The hops actually do make a small peek into play for a slight bite on the end. And I mean slight, almost non-existence. That, or i'm mistaking it for alcohol burn. Where's the nut? No where to be found. For a 9% brown, this isn't dreadful. It's a risk-taker.
M : Heavy, and quite soft in the mouth that leaves a coat of film all around.
D : At 9%, this isn't something you'd have too many of. Honestly, it's not something I crave a second for at all. Maybe the combination of alcohol and sweetness just turns me off after one.

Ruby brown in color with good light tan head, good lacing, and a thick collar. Aroma is dark molasses, nutty and earthy. Taste follows pretty much identically. Mild hop bitterness in this one. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Definitely my favorite of the three beers I had at the brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
