A. Rich, cloudy amber 1 finger head almost lacing

S. Toffee some hops. Slightly floral orange

T. Honey malty. Smoothe oily hops masked by Werther's candy and Kahlua. Notes of vanilla
( that's what it reminds me of )

D. Makes me want to study more.
Very complex and smoothe flavor.

Dark amber color with a two finger off white head which quickly fades to 1/2 finger and holds. Smell is a combination of caramel and toffee with some hops in the background. Taste is caramel, toffee, and toasted malt with some bitter hops for balance.

Medium bodied with good carbonation. The initial flavor is somewhat sweet, the bitter hops are strongest in the aftertaste, but not overpowering. A well balanced beer which I would buy again.
