My pour resulted in a finger of manilla folder colored head. The body is a nice rich brown with orange characteristics. Head has good retention and the beer laces up nicely.

It smells slightly nutty and deeply malty. Digging into the aromas awards me with more nuttiness, toffee and spice.

This beer is very malty up front, with a bit of toffee to round it out. Nuts are in the background, with a transition to a hopped spiciness. There is a bit of coffee on the swallow that really makes this a good one.

This beer has a light-medium body, probably due to seemingly heavy carbonation. It finishes with just a little film left on the front of the tongue.
