4.1/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. No bottled on date. There's a dog on the label, and a little note about it. What is with the whole micro brown ale/dog thing?
Appearance: Pours a grand beer with a massive off-white/tan head that stick and retains very well. Beer colour is deep brown/chocolate with mahogony stain edges.
Smell: Aroma = absolutely wonderful. Perfumy, floral, malty, toasty, bicuity with freshly milled grain powder aromas and loads of caramel flavours that force the anticipation of a rather sweet brew.
Taste: Silky smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. Malt flavours are very even. Caramel, earth, a bit nutty, touch of roasted, toasted and biscuit followed by a near sugary sweetness, but not too sweet. Hop flavours are perceived, but not dominant ... providing balance and thin bitterness that seems to team up with the touch of roasted malt. Hint (hint) of raisin that mingles with the hops. Finish goes a tad dry with some grain notes.
Notes: A very tasty and well-executed American brown ale. If you're a brown ale fan, this is a must. Malty, balanced, tamed hop character and a wonderful aroma.
Many thanks to Arctic Liquors for the sample.

Pour from can purchased at Distellers Outlet in Poway CA. Dark brown with a big off white head. Nice lacing. Smell is incredible. Vanilla, brown sugar, honey. Taste is very pleasent. Malts and a nutty tinge with hints of vanilla, defintley getting some chocolate too but its very faint. I purchased just one can, next time I'll get a sixer of this, really enjoyable.

T- Roast barley, sweet malt, light caramel, herbal hops creep in, which is slightly off putting. Long bready finish.
