3.93/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – medium brown in color, with about half a finger’s worth of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – strongly spiced type of malt aroma. The roasted quality is slightly discernable in the smell, as it the Citra hop used.

Taste – the roasted flavor is the first to be perceived, indeed coming out much like a roasted nut brown ale, with the same syrupy type of a flavor as well. The Citra hop adds a slight bitterness towards the finish of the tasting. Aftertaste remains slightly bitter and roasted.

Mouthfeel – pretty well-balanced, but does lean just a bit more toward the watery side.

Overall – not a bad tasting brew at all, and decently interesting to think about while tasting.

3.7/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1 finger of anemic off-white foam settles to a nice, thin cap over the top of this deep, clearish, reddish-mahogony beer. Looks nice.
Smell: I can smell the hops, distinctly. Once you get used to that, you can detect a sweet, pleasant maltiness.
Taste: This beer is very well balanced. Slight carbonic bite and pleasant hoppy bitterness yields to nice malty sweetness, with a nice, sweet, toasty finish. Again, fantastically balanced.
Mouth-Feel: Carbonation is noticeable and seems to fight against the thickness of this beer. Pleasant overall, but adds little.
Overall: A very solid brew. It tases like a lighter, more balanced porter. I would buy it again, but my maximum would be two bottles. A tad syrupy, otherwise very decent.
