My 150th review! I'll always remember you, watership brown... .

Appearance 3.5: Pours out a deep, golden amber with a fine 1/4" creamy head. Very attractive.

Smell 3.0: Nice bouquet. Malt, brown sugar...but I also detect a hop I do not care for. Slight bleu cheese bouquet mixed with a rotten lemoniness. Yeah. I do not like that hop.

Taste 3.75: Front is where some very pleasant maltiness seeps in. Middle is smooth, creamy and neutral. Finish is where some amazing malt and brown sugar and caramel creeps up on you along with a very slight hoppiness. Finish is long and this is where some previously unnoticed toasted grains appear in the flavor palate.

Mouthfeel: 4.0: Carbonation level is perfect for this type of beer and really enhances the tasting experience.

Overall 3.50: Very nice taste and drinking experience with this beer. However, the experience was tempered somewhat with the hop I do not like (wish I could find out what it is!). Regardless, this beer is entirely sessionable and thoroughly enjoyable. It may be a bit sweet for some, but I would recommend you try this brew if you can find it.

Drank this out of a Sam Adams pint glass. This beer starts off with a cloudy hazy brownish body topped off with a thin tannish head.



The nose is picking up a lot of roasted malt mingling in with milk chocolate and a hint of caramel. Very sweet and inviting.



The flavor seems to be well balanced with a liberal amount of hops (that my nose failed to pick up on) matched with a malty sweetness that ends with a dry coco flavor.



The mouthfeel is smooth, somewhat oily, with low carbonation--as it should.



I like this brew a lot. Overall, I know this is far to high on the ABV scale to be considered a session beer, but I could drink this all night.

A - Light brown, with a little bit of clarity. 1 finger of head, and nice sticky lace left on the glass

S - Roasted grains and chocolate. Sweet.

T - The taste is sweet, with some chocolate notes. Coffee, roasted goodness

M - Light bodied, well carbonated.

O - A pretty nice drinking experience. I think this one will grow on you over time. Looking forward to more from this local brewery (Atlanta)
