First off, this beer is classified in the wrong category. This is definitely a Belgian Stout.
Poured into a wide mouthed goblet.
Amber flushed dark brown fluid with slight light tan head. Head reduced to thin lace and a few spots floating atop the liquid.
The smell is really interesting with major nutty notes, slight coffee, caramel and some roasty quality. A spicy Belgian note pemeates the darker aromas. There is a very pure, layered aspect to the aroma. All the notes are cleanly evident without being muddied.
The taste exhibits the same qualities as the aroma with dark caramel, nuttiness, and slight roasty, surrounded by a spicy Belgian yeast character.
Mouthfeel is apropos with light carbonation but medium full mouthfeel.
Drinkability is very good with well balanced flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
