Very dark brownish red ale with a nice looking foamy tannish head. Smell is mainly of english hops, nothing overpowering. Nice chocolaty taste, with a good coffee bitterness that make for a nice dry mouthfeel. Hints of hoppiness in the taste that go well with sweet chocolate maltiness. Nothing overpowering here, just a pleasant tasty brew that's quite drinkable. Nice job. One of the better brown ales i've had.

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
