A- nice clear dark brown with orange highlights. tan colored foam is dense and frothy and settles quickly leaving minimal lace, but holds at about 1/8in disk.
S- sweet and toasty aroma of brown sugar, caramel, molasses, chocolate, mocha, marshmallow, and floral hops. sandalwood and plumeria add a fragrant spice.
T- toasted and sweet with a hint of alcohol. burnt cookies, caramel, nutty, chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, pecan, damp wood, soil, nice herbal bitterness throughout. finishes pretty clean with long lingering malt flavors. there's some astringency however, and i don't like that in this style of beer.
MF- robust and a bit syrupy with low carbonation, this is almost like malt water. more effervescence would liven up the body and hide the alcohol better. leafy feel and alcohol dryness left behind. could be much better.
D- i might have to put the doppelrock over there with grassroots ale. some tweaking is necessary to take this one from "meh" to "rock solid".
