Pours a beautiful dark amber color. Lots of carbonation on the pour that quickly goes away. Smells very sweet, more of a hazelnut, although it's very light. Tastes very very sweet. It's different, not what I expected but it's very good.

Pours brown and leaves the same colored body that gives a spectacular one finger foamy off white head. Some nice spotty foamy lacing is observed. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising; the aroma has a fair amount of nuts, caramel malts up front, hops slightly in the background; the flavor is exactly the same; its fairly easy on the palate with a good creaminess all around; overall well worthy to come back to.

18 oz bottle in 16 oz glass. Nice creamy 2 finger head that dissipates with nice lacing. Amber red color. Smell is malty and yeasty. Taste is a little on the dry side with nice malty taste, medium carbonation. A little thin in the mouth, no nasty aftertaste. Very drinkable, especially on a hot day.
