3.5/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Clear, deep reddish-brown, with a large, cream-colored head, which retains fairly well. Thick Belgian-like lacing adorns hte glass walls. The carbonation is moderate, with some small streams of slow-rising bubbles.
Aroma: Lots of toasted malts, dark bread, and caramel. The hops are rather faint.
Taste: Lots of roasted malt at the open, followed by a little caramel and toffee. As the taste progresses, it segues towards dark bread. There is a slight burnt note at the finish, and a very restrained herbal hop note.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A pleasant example, would make a nice session beer, although its a little pricey at $7.99 a six-pack.
Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.
Serving type: bottle
