Notes/Commercial Description:
A myth shattering ale that proves all dark beers don't have to be filling. Sweetly smooth with nutty hints of roasted caramel flavor. Brewed with American, Canadian and English grown barley and American hops.

4.5/5  rDev +25%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pub glass. I've had this many times before at the Brothers bar in Lincoln.

Appearance: Pours a rich, dark brown with a fair amount of cream-colored head. The head dissipates after some time, but a thin layer remains on the top of the brew. Lacing is apparant on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Fulfilling wheat smell is predominant. The smell is strong, and a good indicator of the taste.

Taste: Full-bodied, with a strong burst of roasted grain. The taste is very distinctive, and it makes an immediate impression. The finish is quick and crisp, and there is no lingering aftertaste. All in all, this is a very good brew.

Mouthfeel: It is thinner than some other ales I've had, and a little over-carbonated. However, it is still quite good. Though, I would cut down on the carbonation a bit if I had the opportunity. Empyrean really likes to lay on the carbonation it seems.

Drinkability: Quite good. I order pitchers of this at the bar often, and it is not filling or too rich for a session. Combined with its superb flavor and light mouthfeel, this is the ideal brew to drink while at a bar in Lincoln, NE.

A very good brew, and one of my personal faves from the local breweries in Nebraska.
