3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a root beer brown, deep color with hints of light coming through. Frothy, three fingered head that hangs around a while. 3-4 sips in and the lacing remains.

Malty, earthy aromas. Toffee, hazelnut, faint hops, vague coffee aromas, and brown sugar.

Smooth flavors. Sweet but with lots of roasted notes of grain, nuts, and coffee. Remnants of some hop flavor across the middle with little to no bitterness in the finish.

Slick, mouth coating, great carbonation. Frothy in the mouth.

Very easy to drink and one that could be enjoyed in multiples. Nothing about this screams amazing, but nothing screams red flag either. A good example of an approachable, enjoyable brown ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured this into a glass, it has a Mahogany color body with thin head. The aroma has roasty malt and a little hop coming from it. The taste has a roasty, chocolaty up front and a little hop towards the back. The malt is more dominant than the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.
