3.88/5  rDev -3%

A: Pours a dark coppery/red with a nice thick foamy head. Pretty good head retention.

S: Malt, malt and more malt. Faint toffee like sweetness and some smoky aromas.

T/M/D: Same as the nose. Malty and nutty. Very smooth and well-balanced. The finish isn't that long-lasting but nice medium body and pretty drinkable.

Overall, well balanced beer that's pretty drinkable. Would try again.

4.15/5  rDev +3.8%

Appears a copper toned amber with a small, white head that fades into a mild cap. Scattered traces of lacing are left around the glass. Small streams of CO2 quickly rise to the top.
Smell - super malty, nutty, caramel, earthy, mushrooms, sourdough, toffee, and esters of bubblegum & light plastic.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with some toasted nuts and sticky, syrupy goodness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, syrupy, sticky, sweet, and balanced.

Coppery with a reddish hue and a fine, light beige cap. Just a bit of sticky lace and it had pretty good head retention. Very malty aroma, nutty and earthy, some toffee and faint roast, perhaps a hint of smoke far in the background. Low bitterness with malt front and center, definitely balanced to the sweet side without being anywhere close to cloying. Again, nutty with some toffee and a hint of chocolate/roast in the background. Dry grainy finish. Extremely smooth with very fine bubbles of CO2, medium bodied, superb texture. Very nicely done, great balance and highly drinkable.

Draught in Phoenixville: This one poured a fairly clear, coppery color. There was a very small off-white head on mine, and it left some lacing. The aroma was caramel malt, floral hops, toasted biscuit, and maybe some nuttiness. The taste was very similar. Malty, toasty, biscuity, subtle fruits, slightly dry finish, and somewhat bitter. It was very well balanced. A very nice brew.
