Yummy malty goodness on the nose! Nice sweet caramel, toffee, nuts and baked bread. It smells like a confectionary of the best kind.
Beautiful dark amber in color with big carbonation bubbles slowly rising to the surface. The head is a light tan that holds fairly well and laces in really nice rings as you sip away.
The flavor mimics the taste incredibly well with big emphases on toasted almonds and cashews. Smooth and surprising light, with a medium carbonation level, this beer is easy to drink, refreshing, and completely satisfying.

Swung by local bbq and craft beer joint, bobbique, for some lunch and a pint. Served in a glass mug. Brew is transparent brown w a thin creamy almost tan head. Nose is malt forward with a really nice crystallized malt caramel thing going on in the taste. A bit toasted. Easy drinker really nice example of the style, but on the earthier side of the spectrum. I wouldn't expected less earth and more hop from alesmith.

3.8/5 rDev -2.1%

Poured into a modified tulip at 50deg.
A - Caramel colored, clarity is nice, light thin topping of white froth.
S - Tones of warm dark fruit, burnt sugar, and warm wheat toast.
T - Caramel, brown sugar, a hint of floral at the end.
M - Uniform coating that lingers for some time. The carbonation is low giving the mouth feel a slickness.
O - I find the offering a little thick, the flavor is complex, and the balance is wonderful
I will revisit and report back.
