Appearance: Deep ruby-brown when held to light, with a creamy off-white head. Spots of lacing.
Smell: Nice rich smell, with significant semi-sweet chocolate and caramel malt notes. Hops are minimal, and this gives every impression of being a nice complex, sweet brew.
Taste: Comes across as creamy, yet still slightly watery up front. Middle is slightly sweet, with a pleasant nuttiness and charred dark malt notes. Finish holds coffee, and is relatively dry.
Serving type: bottle

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
