3.7/5  rDev -3.4%

Dark amber body displaying a thick, creamy and sticky light tan head. Deep, rich malt nose; caramel, roasted nuts; touch of spicy hop scents. Strong roasted grain flavor; slight burnt undertone; some alcohol notes; decent hop bitterness at the finish. Solid medium body.

A rather good brown ale. The alcohol heat becomes increasingly more noticeable after a few sips and somewhat distracts from the malt and hop character, but by and large, it lives up to its “double” styling with big, bold flavors.

Poured into a snifter glass. Pours opaque dark brown with a thick beige head that dissipates very slowly. There are lots of visible streaming bubbles that can be seen on the side of the glass. Lots of lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. There are aromas of brown malt, toffee, nuts, chocolate, and some floral hops hit the nose. The flavors do follow the nose. There's some mild toffee sweetness with some nuttiness and roastiness from the malts. I get some faint chocolate notes and plenty of back end bitterness from the hops. There are also some citrus notes. The body is light to medium with strong carbonation. The hops and malt roastiness remain in the aftertaste for a little while. This is a good beer.
