Poured into a pint glass.
Pours a deep nutty brown color (obviously). Inviting aromas of caramel, some chocolate, and roasted nuts. The taste follows with some definite roasted notes and sweetness. Mouthfeel is watery, but not awful. Easy drinking for sure. I've had 3 different Troegs beers over the last 3 nights and have enjoyed each of them. Great brewery. Recommended.

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
