Definitely in my top 3 every day casual drinking beers, if for no other reason than its smoothness and drinkability. Looks like an extremely dark malty brew, but your first sip reveals a smooth light nutty beer, with a hint of chocolate on the finish and a slight sweetness throughout. Let me emphasize how smoothly this beer goes down - on my first bottle I took a sip, swallowed, thought wow this is good, immediately took another sip... and repeated down to 2/3rds through the bottle before I caught myself. Even if you don't normally care for darker beers give this one a try - you won't be disappointed.

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
