On tap at the BBW Brew Pub.

Poured a medium to deeper brown color (with a reddish tint) and an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted nuts with some light chocolate and roast in the background. Tastes of toasted malts, bready, biscuit, caramel, light roast and some nuts. Lacing left on the glass.

On tap at the brewpub.

Across the board, this beer is good but not great. The flavor is nice, but not that big or complex. It is a little interesting, with a slight roasted character that makes me think this is some sort of Belgian porter. There' s also a little plum and touch of spice, but not that much "Belgian character."

On tap at the brewpub. Served in a heavy, dimpled chalice...
Appears a dark brown with ruby red edges when held to the light. Light tan head fades into a hearty collar. Streaky lacing is left behind.
Smell is of oatmeal, cocoa powder, banana, caramel, and light diacetyl highlighted with buttercream.
Taste mimics the aromas with grainy, nutty, raisin flavors that seem to pull through.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, and smooth. Well balanced.
