3.8/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark brown; ruby highlights. Thick khaki head that dissipates quickly. Large carbonation bubbles along glass edge.

Smell: Light aroma of toast, roasted malt, mild coffee.

Taste: Roasted malts combined with brown sugar; dark fruit, raisin. Slight coffee.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. More carbonation than many dark beers. Some of the 7.5% ABV is evident.

Overall: Very nice. Good combination of a lighter roasted porter and a strong but not overly sweet brown ale. A great hybrid of styles producing a tasty brew!

A. Dark. No transparency. Thick creamy head fades slow.

S. Malts. Cut grass. Coffee. Zesty lemony aroma. Very nice and refreshing.

T. Really complex. Got a touch of citrus up front. Malts and toasted grains. Bitter hops but not super strong. Peppery. A nice chocolate sweetness follows.

M Pretty light but there is some foamy richness. Boozy tangy aftertaste.

O. Good beer by a brewery that impresses me more and more with each beer I have. Mix of flavors is great. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Sweet sour and bitter. I'll have this again.

Poured into shaker pint.

Had this beer for the first time on tap at Muddy Pig. Very good.

Second time was at Grumpy's NE. After 3 pints... I'm sold. All around good beer. Malty, balanced, a touch boozy (which I like). When I'm not in the mood to be kicked in the teeth by a hop cone and still want a good beer - this is is on the current top 5 list.

Mouthfeel, color, head retention, on and on... Don't get too worked up, beer geek. Just order a pint, drink it, and order another. Does the body good.
