Pours very thick and dark. Looks more like a nut black than a nut brown. Virtually no head, and little carbonation. It's almost nonexistent aroma is of sweet, biscuity malts. The taste is alright. They definitely went light on the malts and hops. It's kinda sweet and not too nutty. It has a very light body which makes it easy to drink. It's a good session beer if you're into that kinda thing.

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
