Kentucky

3.83/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Slightly warm pour yields a dark brown opaque with garnet highlights and a frothy one inch tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Nutty, caramelly malt and toasted breadcrust begin the aroma. There's a bit of brown sugar sweetness, pine, and a touch of citrus at the finish.

Flavor reveals deep nutty notes, toasted breadcrust, hints of toffee, and a bit of roast at the finish. There's a little sweetness throughout. Citrus fruits appear mid palate and dissipate toward the lightly bitter, fairly dry finish. Chocolate emerges as it warms.

Body is creamy and on the full side, with slight slickness and carbonation on the low side.

Good toasted malt character, a touch of hops, but definitely malt focused, as it should be. No off flavors.
