4.12/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A nice malty brown with nice clarity and good head retention of a thin creamy cap. Descent lacing. The smell was a malt bomb with caramel, toffee, hints of chocolate and a touch of earthy hops to balance things out. The taste was sweet caramel, toffee with a nutty note, a touch of chocolate and some earthy notes. Not my favorite, but an excellent beer. Smooth, creamy and easy to drink.

Pours a cloudy, copper/amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, yeast, hint of alcohol, hint of hops, and slight pale malt. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of dry hop, and a hint of dark citrus. The bartender said this was a combination between an English Brown and a Belgian. This is not an herbed/spiced beer. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and body.

I would argue with the characterization of this as an herbed/spiced beer unless you consider malt a spice! I was told that this beer uses 100% English malt, and this is a definate malt bomb with just enough hops to provide a bit of balance. It comes out a nice amber color with a strong white head which lasts a good while. The first taste is caramel with a slight hop character at the end. As it warms, you get a bit of bread and toffee with a nice smooth creamy mouthfeel. This beer screams session beer as it is wonderfully drinkable and not too high on the alcohol (5.6% if I remember correctly). This is a great beer if you're into malty and less hoppy flavors.

Draft at the brewpub.

Pours a dark golden copper color with dark mahogany/golden apricot hues and a one finger off white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.  Sporadic spots of lacing left behind.

Sweet malt aroma with faint floral hops and hints of biscuit, toffee and hazelnut.  I'm also picking up caramel, subtle peppery spice and floral hops.

Medium bodied and very well balanced.  Very malt forward with lots of caramel, toffee, biscuit and hazelnut but there's also some zesty; peppery spice and a good bit of earthy dry hops up front for balance.  Good session beer that's very drinkable.

Horkey was not available as a style choice so this was entered as a spiced beer. Pours a medium brown with a tan head. The nose has mostly malts with an herbal hop presence. Flavor is also malt heavy, but well balanced. Medium body drink easy. A unique brew from Trinity.

Poured a medium brown with no head or carbonation at all. Nose is mlat, light hops and very faint but I could detect a little bit of spice but I could not tell you what. Taste is weak, malt heavy for the style and not really something I would ever taste again. Mouthfeel is heavier but not tasty. Pass on this.

one of the staple beers at trinity, this one usually strikes a better chord with me in the autumn time of year, but always nice to have on here and there. it pours a murky brown color with a gorgeous caramel colored lace head. the nose is quite nutty, like almond butter, with a lighter german feeling malt bill, and subtle notes of chocolate malt. the flavor is a lot like the nose, although there is no sweetness to either the malt or to that nutty element. very earthy and very different, apparently a rather uncommon style of beer. pairs well with the lamb burgers at the brew pub, and stays rather sessionable despite its bigger body and softer carbonation. its a creative offering, sort of a new twist on a nut brown, well worth sampling on your next visit to the springs.

On tap at the brewery and served to a mug. The beer pours a very hazy deep rich amber color with a 1 finger off-white/cream colored head. Good retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of caramel malts, sweet dark fruit, yeast ester, and earthy hops. The flavor is very much the same with a sweet caramel malt flavor, hints of earthy and citrus hops. Tastes like a belgian brown with the yeast ester, though this is muted. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finishes creamy with a lingering sweetness on the tongue. Overall, this was a good beer! Enjoyable.
