Bottle poured into pilsner glass
A...Nice copper, slightly brown color. Did not produce much more than a 3/4" head but retained that height almost the entire beer. Some light lacing on the glass
S...Really nice earthy aroma with a little caramel
T...Malty right up front for me. There is a real nutty kind of dominant flavor with some caramel sweetness on the finish.
M...really nice body a bit heavier than I expected from looking at it.
O...I would have liked a little more hops presence in this beer since hop is in the name. That being said, it was very enjoyable. I really liked the nutty sweetness in this brew. Heavy alcohol (8%) was not noticable. Nicely balanced. I will buy again.
