3.05/5 rDev -18%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
Good copper colour, with a foamy two finger off white foamy head that quickly becomes a one finger off white foamy head.
The smell is kind of stale, with some fruity and spicy notes, overlaying deep malty sweetness.
A strange flavour...quick spicy matiness is replaced almost immediately by in-shell peanuts that haven't been roasted enough. It sounds odd, and it IS odd. There's still some maltiness and spice throughout. But I *swear* there's a not-quite raw peanut flavour there.
Mouthfeel is OK...a bit thicker than average, as is the carbonation. However, the carbonation stays up high where it doesn't get in the way.
This would be MUCH mroe drinkable were it not for the whole peanut thing.

Nitro bottle, Best By 05/08/14
L - very rigorous pour, as indicated on cap and label, reveals a copper colored ale with a smooth ivory head that eventually rises to half a finger
S - very herbal aroma, caramel, vanilla and bread are all faintly present
T - bread, caramel, vanilla, herbal hop,
F - extra smooth feel, medium body, goes down easily
O - I'm not sure which I prefer (regular Sawtooth or Nitro Sawtooth), but this one is definitely unique. Glad to try it.
