3.5/5 rDev -1.1%
Poured from the can into my Delirium tulip.
Appeared a dark brown, see through color with a 1 finger light brown head.
Smells extremely malty right off the bat, slight dark fruit scent - raisins and figs are dominant.
Taste is extremely malty. A bit too much for my liking but not bad. Lots of dark fruit flavors. Would have liked a bit more balance with the hops.
Mouthfeel was about average.
Overall, not my favorite but not bad either. A bit too malty for my liking.

Poured from growler into oversize mug. Dark amber color. White head fades to 1/4 inch foam.
Smells of caramel, toffee, roasted malts, & a hint of raisin blended with rich grains.
Taste is malty and rich. Mouth filling, but not heavy. Clean. Some mild sweetness, and gentle hops to dry things out. Easy drinking, and I imagine this is great for all seasons, but especially Autumn.
I started the growler, then finished it the next day. It seemed mellower the next day, and was more enjoyable. I wonder what the ABV is? Can't be too strong though, because it doesn't kill me.

On tap. Pours a dark copper with almost no head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, earth and some spicy hops. Taste is much like the aroma. Caramel malts upfront with some floral spicy hop notes. A bit earthy and sweet. Somewhat of a root beer taste to this one. Light and crisp. Floral finish. Overall, decent beer ideal for the cooler months. Nothing special but worth trying.

Poured from a growler into a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, carbonated, amber-copper coloring with a thin, sparse, filmy white surface coating. Aromas of rich, sweet caramel and nut, with a decent amount of roasty highlights. Some subtle hops presence at the tail end of the aromas, as well. Flavors are light on a smooth, light body. Roasty flavors initially, with a solid nut and caramel backbone. Malty and rich, with a touch of hops to clean everything off the palate. Mild bitter aftertaste that vanishes quickly for a clean, smooth finish. Very tasty brew.
