On-tap at Albany Pump Station, Albany, NY

A: The beer is hazy very dark red in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short beige head that died down but left lots of patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the nutty malt flavors are a little stronger and seem to intensify as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice nutty flavors. It would pair very well with a meat dish.

Poured on-tap at the Pump Station, the beer was served in a shaker pint. Slightly hazed hazelnut color with a thin, filmy, light tan head. Clingy all over the glass. Nose of toffee rich and sweet, with a touch of roasting. Flavors reveal hints of chocolate, with a toffee backbone and hops bitterness. Very well balanced. Light bodied, with a clean, crisp finish. The aftertaste is rich, sweet, and roasted. Very good beer and very sessionable.
