3.83/5  rDev +13%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear, amber-brown body with a very thin, very short-lived near-white head.

Smell: Aroma smelling a bit sweetly with malty hints of nutty caramel, chocolate, and mocha with a base breadiness to it and accented with light fruity notes.

Taste: Bready malts with light touches of milk chocolate, roast, and dark caramel. Faintly nutty. Passably sweet. Mildly fruity estery notes lending a hint of cherry. Woodsy hop character with a low bitterness, just enough to counter the sweetness. Finishes out dry, a bit nutty.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth going down.

Overall: A nicely malty brew with a sensibly slackened alcohol presence. I thought it was a pleasant and it was gone in a flash.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beers pours a dark copper color body with a small head that doesnt' hang around long. The smell has a nice inviting malt characters to it. The taste upfront has nice maltness then on the back of the tonuge after it has warmed up a little bit then comes some chocolate and roasted malt flavors with a nice hop presence but not over powering. The mouthfeel is good and overall a pretty good beer.

3.45/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Poured dark brown, two shades shy of being black. Little foam, very fizzy, settles out. Funky nutty smell. Taste is sweet, nutty, and cola flavored. Earthy? (from notes, but in hindsight not really). A little like flat soda. Or a funkier nut brown. Mild understates it. Hard to fully describe.

Serving type: bottle
