Poured into the Samuel Adams pint glass. Deep brown in color, dishwater tan head that settles to a soapy ring. Aroma is dry with chocolate, coffee, hops, and all purpose ale yeast. The taste isn't bad, but it is a bit lackluster. Sweet and toasted, a little thin, and a mellow hopping. Residual spiciness is slightly unfavorable. Maybe the hops are a little aggressive, or the toasted grain is more burnt than toasted? Can't quite put my finger on it, but it isn't the best English Brown I have come across. Decent though.

Looks like a nut brown. Gorgeous khaki head with a creamy density. Deep red-brown body with some light allowance.
Sweet hazelnut malts with coffee notes, herbal hops, earthiness, toffee, and a hint of harvest fruit. Delicate, yet robust.
Kind of a thin flavor. It's not marred by any metallic notes or sweetness. Light and dry. Breakfast coffee, almond, toffee, scorched earth, tree bark, hints of alkaline (cocoa/hop bitterness), herbal flavors, hazelnut, and a kiss of red apple. Quite nice, sans the lack of intensity.
Drinks easily. Very soft-bodied. Round and rolling, in the mouth. Lightly carbonated for an enduring session drink.
Happy that Troegs brought this back so that I could finally review it. Cheers!
Serving type: on-tap
