Pint on tap at the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton, MT. Arrived a dark brown-black with a ruby red halo at the bottom of the glass and a smooth, creamy, fine tan head of around two fingers height. Aroma decidedly sweet and malty, moderately roasted yet with a surprising degree of floral, earthy hops (for the style): Toffee, chocolate milk, coffee liqueur, sultana raisins, red licorice, Fuggles hops, faint pine needle. A moderately thick and rich brew redolent with cola and chocolate notes, sweet and smooth like a milk stout, low carbonation and a surprisingly fruity finish full of strawberry and raspberry-evoking esters. More drinkable and light than the sweet flavor suggests. Small brewery but a tremendous effort here. I am on the fence about the style designation given here but what do I know. That's what the brewery intended. Certainly there are Scotch ale elements and the overarching effect is deeply caramelized malts tempered via a clever degree of English hop-driven balance.

On tap at Fusion in Helena.
Nice appearance - cloudy brown with a well-retained white head. Smell was a bit muted by the extremely cold temp the beer was served at, but it leaned very malty, with caramel and light fruity yeast. Flavor matched - rich caramel malts with a hint of roastiness. Slightly sweet but balanced with light English(?) hops. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and slightly dry with modest carbonation.

Enjoyed my first beer from The Front and will look for more from them in the future.
