The beer pours into an Imperial Pint glass a nice milk chocolate brown color with reddish highlights. There's a good head that leaves lacing as it recedes.

The aromas are dominated by the malts with some rich toffee and a nutty character.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the toffee and nutty flavors but with the addition of sweetness from the malts and bit of bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on he thick side of medium-bodied and quite prickly from the abundant carbonation.

I'm enjoying this beer and glad to say I've got another to have in the near future. I'd certainly be willing to buy another.
