Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
A- pours a very dark brown with a paper thin white head that immediately disappears. Very strong lacing is left on the glass, at least.
S- not getting much of anything. Hardly any smokiness or nuttiness coming through at all.
T- a nutty, smoky sensation...I'm getting a little cinnamon or nutmeg maybe? The flavor isn't overwhelming...its very nice
M- very light. Almost tastes like a cola.
D- its a drinkable session beer. Probably the worst offering I've had from Troegs, which is saying something with how I'm grading this. I can see why they discontinued it, but its not a bad beer by any means...just a little light for Troegs standards

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
