Poured into a mug from the bottle. Received in the Troegs Brewers 12 pack along with Their Pale Ale, Dream Weaver Wheat and The Hopback Amber ale.
Beer poured a dark brown, some deep magenta colors would show when held up to the light. No head, at least in the mug. No lacing either. A very "clean" beer.
Over powering yeast smell, not much else involved in the aroma here.
Coffee and a slight dark chocolate flavor fill the mouth in this one. Some nutty aftertastes, but not much else going on here. Barely any hop flavor to speak of, nor a real malty flavor. Seemed a bit weak in this department.
Light on the mouth, which is strange considering how dark of a beer this is.
Very low ABV going on here, so this beer is very drinkable. Definately not the best beer from the Troegs boys.

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
