Chestnut-brown ale with a deep red hue in the right light. Carbonation seems a bit off; not much head is created with the pour. The aroma is outstanding though; with lots of complexity. Roasted coffee might be the predominant smell, but underneath that there's hazelnut and a musty, woody character. The taste is quite complex, too, with vanilla, oak, nuts, caramel -- there's all sorts of stuff going on here -- everything except hops. Overall, a very complex ale that is malt forward without being too sweet; The maltiness is offset by a dry finish. Although this isn't as good as the last glass I had on tap at the brewery, it's still a good beer and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
