Chilled bottle into a glass. Picked and sent by mattafett in the beer exchange. Thanks!

A: Pours a ruddy amber color with a finger of creamy off-white head. It retains pretty well, for about a minute, then collapses into a scattered series of bubbles on the brew, with a moderate collar. Some spots of lacing down the sides.

S: Toasty grain and nuts. Some toffee and caramel. Quite a nice, subtle malty aroma. There is a small fruitiness to it that I can't quite pick out, as well as an undercurrent of herbal hop smell.

T: A subdued bready sweetness in the initial taste. It gets progressively sweeter toward the middle, introducing caramel, chocolate, toffee, and a hint of nuts. The finish reveals an undercurrent of balancing herbal hops, which pull into a lightly bitter finish that reveals hints of fruit (red berries of some kind?). One of the best beers I've tasted in this style.

M: A tad fuller than light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very light and even airy on the palate. Goes down very well.

D: I expect more from non-session beers, and this one delivers quite handily. It's incredibly tasty. I think this is going to be one of my gold standards for the style.
