look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap at tavelino in westborough, MA.
A: Fluffy 1/2 finger head fades at a medium pace with semi hazy dark molasses brown color.
N: Nice malts, toasty, a little roast, touch of caramel too. Some might earthy bitter hops as well. Also a slight creamy aroma. Nice toast and malt, but lackin more hops and too creamy, but some hints of smoked malt add to it.
T: Starts with more malts, some toasty malts, creamy with more roast, smoked malts, little chocolate too. Slight buttery with more light earthy bitter hops. A little fruit with touch of tangy that probably shouldn't be there.
M: Mouth is semi creamy medium body with decent carbonation.
F: Finishes with some grassy and earthy mild bitterness. Some lingering smoke and toasty malts, as well as some of the slightly tangy fruit. A little sticky sweetness and medium dry.
Serving type: on-tap

3.36/5 rDev -1.8%

A: A deeper amber color. Very, very clear. Minimal head but pretty decent lacing.
S: Malts dominate the nose. Bready, caramel, and toast are adjectives that all come to mind.
T: Once again the malts are the forefront of the beer. I feel like the focus is more on the bready/toasty characteristics , which personally I like, and they avoided that generic overdone gummy caramel character that far to many ambers have. That being said there's a bit of caramel but its not overdone.No real hops to be found which is somewhat of a let done but it still does a good job focusing on the malt. Perhaps a touch of fruity esters. Bitterness is appropriate.
M: Fairly low carbonation which is nice and makes it easy drinking. The body medium.
O: A good beer. It would have been much nicer with some decent hop profile, even the typical cascade would have been nice. None the less a good transition beer and its pretty easy to drink a few.
Serving type: bottle
