On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:

This beer arrived a dark leatherly brown with shimmering hues of ruby red. The aroma is sweet, lots of toffee and some butterscotch. The taste is more of the same. Sweet upfront, then the toffee and butterscotch comes on in while a minor note of hops plays second fiddle. Unlike a number of American-made brown ales, this one hs an excellent balance between the malt and the hops. Just plain easy to drink, and I wish they bottled this brew.

3.59/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bottle, 2014 vintage, served in a wine glass.

Pours with a very durable tan head that leaves excetional lacing. The body is very dark red-brown, clear but almost opaque.

Aroma: the weak point. Nutty malts with some faint off odors.

Flavor: Moderate strength nutty flavor with dark grains and a impression of dark bread. Good, lingering malty aftertaste.

O: a decent nut brown but the weakest offering I've had from this fine brewery.

Appearance is brown with copper edges and a finger of fluffy beige head that stuck around for eternity and left thick lacing behind. The nose is nutty and bready. The flavor follows the nose but it is not as bold as the very best beers of this style. The body is not quite hearty but not thin either. The finish was very mildly dry and bitter.

Serving type: on-tap
