Pours dark brown with some red undertones, looks like coca-cola. Very little head, that disapates to nothing. Nice smell of malts, and some chocolate. Hazelnut flavor, mixed with some malts and with some underlying hops, some chocolate aftertaste. There is some carbonation, and it has a thin on body. Very drinkable, and tasty, good seesion beer. This is a good representation of the style, and worth a try. I wish I had more.

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
