On tap at the Toronado. Poured into a 13 ounce tulip. No abv info given.
A-Pours a dark brown with lots of reddish hue when held to the light. The bartender filled the glass to the rim so there is a minor white head. A few streaks of lace cling to the glass.
S-Lots of malt. Roast malt and chocolate are ample in the nose. Also get both citrus and earthy hops.
T-Bitter chocolate and roasted malt hit first followed by some nice citrus hops and some earthy hops. It finishes with some roast flavor and some orange. There is also a touch of booze at the end. The roast flavor stays in between sips.
M-It falls on the lighter end of the medium spectrum. It has that velvety smooth RR mouthfeel. There is some tingly carbonation on the back of my mouth.
D-About as good as a brown ale is going to get. The citrus flavor is a nice touch.
Brown ales are a style that I typically avoid. I liked the spin Vinnie and Tasty used on this one. I wouldn't seek it out, but for the style it is very good.
Serving type: on-tap
