Hazy, chestnut bown in color with a huge dense head that goes on and on. Took 3 pours to get the whole thing consumed. Ok aroma-somewhat bready and yeasty. Nice flavor-mild chocolate/cocoa. Bready-like a chocolate biscuit! Quite malty with a delicate, yeasty spice. Smooth mouthfeel-very soft. Some dryness in the finish. Very enjoyable beer overall, perfect for a nice spring day.

A: The beer is hazy chestnut brown in color and yeast particles are visible floating in suspension. It has a very high amount of carbonation, but not nearly as much as the Amber or Blond varieties. It poured into a snifter glass with a three finger high dense beige head that has excellent retention properties; it consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Aromas of yeast dominate the smell, which also has notes of dark malts and hints of spices.
T: The taste is somewhat malty and has a bit of spiciness from the yeast. There are some hints of fruits; the finish has mild notes of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit chalky on the palate with a high amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
D: This wasn't as much of a gusher compared to the Amber and Blond varieties, which made it a lot easier to slowly pour into a glass, yet the chalkiness in the mouthfeel makes this a beer that needs to be sipped.
