On tap at Terrapin Brewery. Served in a Terrapin pint glass.
Pours deep brown with almost 2 fingers cream tinged head. Nice lacing on the glass as I drink it down.
Smells of roasty malts, caramel, bread and a slight hint of pine.
Taste is nice semi roasted malts, a touch of coffee and ever-so-gentle piney hops. Not a bad mix.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Long dry aftertaste.
I'm not much of a brown ale type guy but I'll drink this without complaint if it's presented.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Dark reddish brown in the glass. Poured an ok 1 finger head. Good lacing.
S- Smells are on the faint side. Caramel, cracker, surprisingly big booze, plum, raisin, slight touch of pine, citrus, and chocolate.
T- Follows the nose fairly closely; however, the flavors are better on the tongue than in the nose. Caramel, bready malts, plum, earthy hop spice, booze, slight orange and grapefruit with some pine.
M- Slightly thicker than medium. Smooth on the tongue. Slightly drying with a bready, fruity, bitter aftertaste.
O- At first I didn't like it, but the warmer it got, the more I did. In the end, I feel its easiest to explain it as 50% Brown Ale, 40% Belgian Strong Dark Ale, and 10% IPA. It is very nicely balanced considering all the contrasting flavors and styles. I would definitely have it again.
