Clear garnet/brown with a light cap of brown tinted foam. light lacing and a thin film.
Nose consists of brown bread, earthy/floral hops, yeasty with some fruity ester.
Taste Bitter with a nice roast malt flavor. Hoppy for a brown ale. dry finish.
low end of medium carb with light to medium body.
Tasted boozy for the abv level. A good winter warmer.

New Glarus never fails to please. Nice roasted scent with a hint of sweetness. Smooth medium body with lively, light carbonation. A nice roasted flavor with a hint if hops at the end, with a pleasant nutty after taste.

I'm still not one that enjoys the Belgian yeast taste and this one was the same. It's a good beer, just not my favorite example.
