look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Chilled 12 oz. longneck into a shaker pint. Bottling date 8.7.13.

Look- Medium amber with an orange hue. Thick, creamy off-white head. Good retention, very nice lacing.

Smell- Surprisingly herbal, dark rye bread, a little fusel. Nutty, dark fruit.

Taste- Like the nose, very hoppy for an alt. Nonetheless, very tasty and malt-driven. Nutty, full toasty flavor throughout with some golden raisin. Herbal bittering pushes through after the sip, finishing with a dry honeyed biscuit and peppermint-black tea.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, full, almost creamy. Moderate carbonation. Chalky finish, very clean. Trace of booziness, feels fitting.

Overall- Definitely in the sticke category, but more assertive than you'd expect with the hops. Style- meh, but it's pretty darn good. I'd like to see more like this on the Texas market.

12 oz bottle pours a hazed chestnut color with a modest cap of light tan head. Average retention and little lace.

Nose is nutty, hazelnuts actually with some toffee maltiness.

Taste is pretty good, it has a nice nutty quality without any harsh tannin/toast bitterness. Its on the malty side but still manages to stay pretty dry. Reminds me of a good Dunkel mixed with an English Brown Ale. Im not hating the fact I only got a single of this, but I also dont think Id have had much trouble finishing a sixer.
