Poured from the bottle into a wine taster glass at the DC bottle share. Much thanks to jeff for the bottle.

A good off white head, slightly tan colored with thin contained bubbles. Real nice walnut brown body and large red hues along the edges. Very nice.

Boquet has a first mild nutty sensation, more like a brown ale. Some sweet subtle cream and soft bodied. Not much caramel or large malt sweetness, but still inviting and very enjoyable.

Palate brings a matching soft texture and taste. Soft malts, with a hint of char and caramel. Light brown sugar rolls around nicely in a somewhat thin mouthfeel.

Overall a bit thin and wet for a wee heavy but with some very solid enjoyable qualities nonetheless.
