A: The darkest brown. Tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves tons of webbed lacing.
S: Burnt caramel, roasted malts, the slightly metallic smell of a Belgian, a little hop bitterness.
T: Flavor is nice, but quick to disappear. Caramel, then char and a little cocoa. Bitterness seems to come from the malt, not hops. Low sweetness.
M: Fairly thin, as I expected. Good carbonation.
O: I like it. Not a style I'm very familiar with, but it's nice to have a simple, unoffensive, sessionable beer every now and then, isn't it?

On-tap, served in a shaker pint.

A- 1-finger of tan head that sustained itself throughout the glass. Deep brown body with dark red hues at the edges. Appeared to have light carbonation. Thick, foamy rings were left all about the glass.

S- A touch subdued perhaps. The best I can come up with was something of candied peanuts or beer nuts. A brown sugar or caramel with a definite nutty note.

T- Very rich out of the lower ABV, as a dark mild should. Initial thoughts were a lot of toasted malts. I picked up the sugary, nutty flavors noted in the aroma after a few sips. Clean finish.

M- Medium-light feel with a very dry quality and light carbonation. Pleasant enough.

O- We need more of these beers Stateside. Lower alcohol, rich and malty...if it weren't for a drive home, I'd drink this all night. Time to find out if this is currently on the shelves....
