4.18/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nearly flawless apperance, this lacing on the glass was handed down from the gods. The tawny russet hue is dusted with a bit of haze and shimmers in the light.

Smell: Hint of spice, bread crust, estery alcohol and a smidge of dark fruit show a complex yet inviting aroma.

Taste: Some phenols upfront with a pinch of butteriness, dry bread crust and carob are from the malts. Intricate yeast flavours of nuts with some leftover phenols, light esters and faint fruit round out the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and deceiving with a nicely lined smoothness within the semi-dry palate.

Drinkability & Notes: This beer is too highly seated to be all alone, some soft cheeses and crackers are an excellent union to take the taste buds to a higher level.

Sampling right now on 11/23/14. Had this one before a couple of years back. Single 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle that runs in the $5.99 range. Picked this up about 7 months ago actually that was out for 'make your own 6 pack' for $8.99 at Hy-Vee. Back of label says: BEST BY 06.12.17. Plenty of time left for this good brew. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a snifter glass.

Pours a pretty deep ruby-amber in color with a good 1+ finger creamy off-white head that settles down to a good 1-2mm layer on top but mostly around the sides of the glass. Some thick layers of lacing is seen that slips back down the glass after the sip (this is a SIPPING brew and not a chugging type.) LOTS going on with the aroma and what I can pick out is spice, dark fruits, sweet malts, and bread. Pretty much the same for the taste with even more going on which I can't really figure out. Very tasty and actually gets better while warming up some. Smooth with a slight sweet finish. Medium+-bodied with perfect carbonation. A pricey brew BUT if you want a great quality brew for this style, then this is it. It's a '10' and is as good as it gets. PROSIT!

from 330 ml bottle in goblet
A: mildly creamy head, very effervescent, deep coke color with touch of ruby and amber
S:alcohol, bread, malt, rich and warm
T: immediately greeted by the carbonation, malt presence is mild/not overwhelming, no real fruit past the sweet suggestion of it (no specific fruit stands out), very much similar to the brown ale style from which it is derived but not bitter,
M:creamy and fizzy, sits on the tongue and in the stomach, very satisfying
O: a very satisfying and appealing beer, a complement to the style in a very positive way, honestly i feel as though the complexity here could be a bit more manifest and the beer itself could be a little more rich and dark but overall an outstanding beer

33cl bottle from Firefly locally. Chilled slightly, opened to a fountain of foam. Poured it full on into a chalice. Head dissipated rapidly, slight lacing left behind. Great Malty upfront taste, with sugar and candy high notes. It flattened out fast and carbonation was gone, maybe a slightly older batch,. Quaffed quickly, will try again.
