Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a nice deep copper color with a tiny fizzy off white head. A little bit of a reddish hue shines through the brew when held up to the light. The head fades very fast leaving only some spots of foam on the top of the brew with a couple big bubbles seen floating atop the surface.
Smell – The aroma is sweet with lots of caramel and some toffee aromas. Mixed with these are a lightly roasted malt aroma as well as some roasted pecan smells, which when mixed with the sweeter aromas, gives a light sugar roasted nut smell. It’s rather nice.
Taste –The taste begins thin, with a lightly roasted malt and caramel taste. The flavors are on the moderate to lighter side with the sweetness beginning stronger in the front and fading as the time moves on, while the roasted flavors take the exact opposite transition. Along with these flavor transitions, some flavors of toast and a roasted nut flavor of pecan come to the tongue more toward the middle of the flavor profile. The nut grows stronger to the end and is joined by a light floral and earthy hop flavor to leave a thin semi-sweet roasted nutty flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the lighter and thinner side with a carbonation that is a bit on the higher side. While the sweetness is nicely complemented by the thinness and higher carbonation, the roasted, malty and nutty flavors of the brew would have done much better with a thicker body and a lower carbonation.
Overall –The body and flavors are a bit weak which takes the brew down a step or two, but it does have decent (but very light) flavor with some nuttiness. An alright brew but nothing special.
