From a 12 oz bottle into a nonic.
A-The brew pours dark, walnut brown. Foam was pretty skimpy and dark khaki in color.
S-Milk chocolate smell up front with a little hit of roasted, nutty malts. As the brew warms, a little brown sugar creeps up. Not terribly fragrant.
T-Smooth, mild, chocolatey malts at first gulp. Then you get a little bit of caramel and nuttiness. The finish has just a little bit of hop kick. Very little bitterness.
M-Lighter bodied for the style with smooth, but noticeable carbonation. The finish is thin. This beer is quite drinkable.
O-There is nothing special about this brew, but it is a solid, drinkable example of the style. The chocolate smell and flavor are a little simple (as is the mouthfeel), but on a relaxing fall evening that calls for a few beers, you could do far worse than putting down a few of these.
