3.63/5 rDev -1.4%
Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, maple, vanilla, caramel and some hops but it’s also a bit metallic.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus maple, caramel and vanilla. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid darker-than-average brown ale to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thanks shan8454 for the trade!
Appearance: Very dark red color with about one finger of white head, mild lacing on the glass.
Smell: Faint scents, fruity maybe some malts and coffee like notes.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Very Smooth medium bodied. Taste was more watery than expected with very subtle toasted malts, cherry like fruit flavor, hint of coffee notes and mild vanilla bean.
Overall: Not what I expected from this brew, but not bad at all. I enjoyed this one.
