12 oz. bottle poured into an nonic. Pours a dark, opaque brown with a 2-finger off-white head. Nice wispy lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts and a bit fruity.
Taste upfront is bready, caramel and some toastiness; nutty with just a hint of chocolate on the back end. The description on the bottle claims a 'pronounced hop finish' but I can't say that I'm getting it. The malt sweetness and bitterness are nicely balanced here. Medium, slightly chewy mouthfeel and a soft carbonation that does a nice job rounding out the flavors.
Overall I was pretty pleased with this beer. Hearty yet drinkable.

On-tap at Otter Creek. Pours opaque dark brown with a good sized cream colored head. Solid retention and excellent lacing; very nice overall appearance. Aroma is quite malty and sweet, somewhat toasty, with light fruitiness, brown sugar, and very faint herbal hops.
Flavor is again on the sweet side, with caramel and brown sugar, toasted, slightly nutty malt, distant fruity and herbal hops that really only emerge as a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite dry despite the initial sweet flavor. Hint of booze in the finish as well.
Medium body and carbonation; feels smooth and has a little heft to it. Average drinkability. Tasty but not super exciting; a little one dimensional, perhaps.
Serving type: on-tap
