Pours a slightly hazy dark copper color with a smallish off white head that doesn't stick around very long. The aroma is quite malty with lots of caramel and toffee with hints of chocolate and a faint earthy hop deep underneath. The flavor follows the aroma quite well with toffee and caramel in the foreground and hints of chocolate and earthy hop bringing up the rear. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. Decent beer, feels like a brown ale at times, but it's a nice gateway style beer.

I was surprised to find this at the local big-box restaurant so I had to try (anything would be better than a Bud, right?)

Appearance was nice - slightly red hue on dark beer with a beautifu cream-colored head. The head was thick, had some staying power and with decent lacing. Smell was mostly hoppy but good. Mouthfeel was above normal for me, the carbonation was about right but it felt a tiny bit watery - no big deal though. The taste was good (a nice selection on a two-for-one night). There was some fruit in there I couldn't pick out and the barley mixed well with the hops. Overall, it wasn't spectacular but it was definitely better than the other selections they had on tap. On its own, it is a pretty good beer. I'll be sure to look for it in the beer aisle next time.
