3/5 rDev -16.7%
A: Translucent cola brown. Very very little head with no retention and no lacing - it soon entirely fades away as though it was never there at all.
S: Mild and malty aromas of caramel, vanilla, hazelnut.
T/M: Again, very mild but pleasant flavors. Vanilla, a slight nuttiness, sweet caramel malts, some tea-like flavors that linger at the end of a sip. Body is a little on the thin side.
O: This goes down really easy and is pleasant in its unassuming way, but there's no oomph to it, nothing special. Easy to drink and totally inoffensive. A little more body and better head/carbonation would go some ways towards making it an entirely average brew.

I had this on-tap at Valhalla in NYC.
Served in a pint glass.
A: Poured out a brown color that was substantially more cloudy in the middle and fairly transparent around the edges. The slight head, while small, still stuck around for a good bit.
S: Both nutty and caramely, farily potent, and with a fresh brown sugar bill along with a lit-kerosene lamp type of fiery smokiness.
T: Yep, lots of roast on this one... more so than many people had given it credit for even. It reminded me somewhat of Alaskan Smoked Porter in this regard.
M: Much more nutty and smokey that mapley or syrupy, with no booze detected, and some moderate lacing left on the glass.
O: Either I was just in the mood for this type of brew or maybe I'm just more of a fan of this style than most. Nevertheless, I thought this was tasty.

Bottle purchased at the brewery in February, and has held up pretty well. Pours a hazy dark brown with red highlights not limited to the edge of the glass. A decent tan coloured head dissipates quickly with little lacing.
Impressive aroma of roasted dark malts, with espresso/coffee tones and even a hint of smoked oak. The flavour isn't as well balanced as I'd hoped, the toasted malt sweetness transitions rather abruptly into a bitter finish, with pleasant nuttiness in the aftertaste.`
