A - Pours a deep brown color with a touch of red around the edges and a half-finger of tan-brown head. The head fairly quickly reduces down to a ring around the glass leaving some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is full of toasted toffee malts and a lot of nutty aroma. Also a nice hint of chocolate mixed in as well.
T - Starts off with some nice sweet caramel malts and a lot of nutty flavor. Through the middle a touch of chocolate comes through with just a touch of hops. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel hops, some nutty flavor, and a touch of chocolate that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little bit sweet overall with a nice dry finish and some flavors that linger on the tongue.
D - Very drinkable. Lots of nutty flavors that blend really nicely with the rest of the flavors. The beer is fairly sweet, but not too sweet. Nicely balanced.

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
