This brewery continues to amaze me - it always lives up to its very lofty reputation. This was a nice smooth beer, very enjoyable and sessionable. Nice amber-copper color with some fluffy head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells faintly of grain, malt and nutty goodness. Tastes similarly, but man that roasted nuttiness is just delicious. Smooth vanilla, caramel and biscuit notes. Nice mild smooth mouthfeel, slightly creamy. Good carbonation. Very enjoyable and makes me want to keep sampling this brewery’s beers.

A: Pours a creamy one finger head. Color of rust/pomegranite. Nice lacing

S: Hazelnut? Chestnut? malt, wheat, and possibly other roasted nuts. There's a sweetness there

T: A nice mix of all the flavors you smell. No individual flavor stands out, but they form a cohesive flavor. Ends with a taste of grain.

O: A very drinkable brown ale. Smooth, nutty, malty. An above average offering.

This has a really nice reddish,brown, auburn color. Body is about medium light with medium carbonation. The body at times seems a little thin which makes the carbonation a little prickly
Aroma is yeast, malt, roasted malts, doughy bread, chestnuts and a mild earthy smell.
Taste is similar to nose, much more of a hop bite than the aroma hints at . The malts make up the bulk of the flavor with the earthy nuttiness following .
Overall it's a really nice beer with the malts making a nice flavor without it becoming a malt bomb
