Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A real noticeable and wonderful forming head, light tan in appearance giving to thin bubbles and large in it's creation. Body provides a bit of dull but nice brown somewhat red amber appearance. Pretty solid looking brew, great retention and clumpy.
Great simple nose on this. Toasty malts with a sweetness controlled and a little subdued. Some faint hop floral like action. Milk chocolate is hiding in the background just so slightly. Real nice.
Boy this is rich. A real nice chocolate like blast here, probably matching the thick body of high abv to go with it. Not boozy either. Mild hop action on this, but mostly a good simple malt forward milky chocolate angle.
Overall, really dig this, don't care if this is hoppy or not, just a solid good amber.

The beer comes in a dark murky copper color.
The beer has a good bready malt and caramel sweetness. The hops are of red grapefruit, some piney hops, herbal qualities.
Well balanced, but slightly pushed back on the hops as in not being extremely hoppy. However, still a good beer with hoppy flavors and a nice malty body.
