Filled a growler at the Troegs brewtour yesterday for $7.25.

This is the first time I've had this beer on draft, and I do notice some differences from the bottled version. Or at least, there are some qualities present that I did not pick up on before.

The most noticeable difference is that this beer has an awesome chocolately undertone to it. This really adds to the full body and makes for a memorable, filling nut brown experience all around.

This is the best nut brown ale I can ever remember having. Highly drinkable and perfect for any time.

Serving type: growler

3.69/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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
