Pours a medium-dark hazy copper color with some orange highlights at the top of the beer where some light is allowed to pass through. A beige, almost yellow-tinted head tops this one off, leaving almost no lacing in its wake. The aroma is initially sweet, dark, and nutty - extremely malt heavy with almost no immediate hop presence at all. Subsequent sniffs reveal more caramel malts, and some mild dark fruits, like plums and raisins, though not as sweet. The nuttiness and caramel malts seem to overpower everything else.
The taste, like the aroma, is also malt heavy, though possibly a little more balanced. There is a mild chocolately flavor that goes hand in hand with the heavy caramel. Toasted nuts and light brown sugar are also floating around. Hops actually come out a little bit; slightly peppery, ashy, and more on the herbal side of things. They don't add too much bitterness, though I'm sure they help to balance out some of the sweetness, as this one never becomes cloying or over the top. Some light raisins and plums in the aftertaste with the still-heavy caramel and cocoa flavors. Thin-medium body, slick and well carbonated.
Not a bad beer; easily drinkable. It just doesn't really do much for me. Somewhat one dimensional and boring, and it doesn't really stand out in any particular category, so it feels like there's no reason to revisit. Thanks to Jeff for sharing this one, though.
