A bit too malty and sweet for my tastes....more hops would have balanced it out better.

Nice maltiness. Not quite enough hop presence. Lacks complexity, but still, a good tasting, exceptionally smooth drinking beer at 7.4% abv. A great companion on a cold winter night.

4.23/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Dark, lustrous, earthy brown. Journey to the center of the Earth. A small but lingering tan head with good lacing along the sides of the glass.

Aroma: A bit weak, actually, but I can detect some soft hints of caramel. Not much else.

Taste: Earthy with a bit of toasty maltiness. It's not overpowering. It has a kind of natural passivity about it, like the Dao. And like Dao, there is a strength to that passivity. Okay, all silly philosophical banter aside, it tastes good.

Mouthfeel: Decent, medium body, with good aftertaste.

Overall: I found myself liking this beer and craving more almost right away. It's unassuming, and gently flavorful.
