3.64/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours dark brown in low/medium light and ruby red/amber in direct light. unfiltered muddy in appearance, but I like this because I prefer beers that I can see and smell.. best served for me at 58 deg. F. - lower temps from the store at 40 deg. shows no head and this is a different tasting beer at colder temps.

Smell: caramel, toasty smoked piney nuts.

Taste: a very smooth malty beer with some very subtle hop flavors, chocolate sweet roasted nut tones, and Vermont maple syrup (maybe?). this is not hop happy for the info of us hoppers. the 7.4 ABV is underlying. I do not taste any fruity overtones.

Mouth Feel: good feel for a quality medium bodied brown ale. correct temp. to desired level, will change the character and taste of this beer. suggest slightly warmer at 58 deg. F. at correct temp. the head shows a nice creamy appearance with good lacing.

Overall: this is a very drinkable smooth malty sweet brown/red ale. I look forward to the colder days when this beer will taste even better - aka Vermont. - by the way, I use a fluted wine glass to drink all my high quality beers like this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Clear chestnut body with a thin light beige cap. Modest head retention with a bit of short-lived lacing. Malty aroma, toffee was dominant with fainter brown sugar and nuts. Hints of alcohol, butter, and toast appeared as the beer warmed. Same malty character in the flavour, but with moderate bitterness and more pronounced nuttiness. Faint cola, herbal, and alcohol notes towards the finish. Decent texture, medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, a pleasant beer that drinks easier than the abv would lead you to believe.
