Had on tap at Zeno's served in a pint glass

Appearance – A deeper brown beer. When held up to lights, some of the rays do get through, but does indeed have a nice darker color making it very dark. Not much of a head on the beer upon serving with a very light amount of lacing.

Smell – A nice sweet aroma of caramel with a very light toasty aroma first encountered. While the sweet aroma persists the toasty aroma fades away to a very light bitter hop at the end.

Taste – Sweet caramel and toffee with chocolate hit the mouth. Some breadiness and maltiness of barley come through with a very, very light hoppiness. The flavor profile has a beautiful balance.

Mouthfeel – Creamy and smooth with the perfect somewhat lighter level of carbonation.

Overall – This is one very enjoyable beer. It had the perfect balance of sweet and malt flavors and aromas with the slightest bit of hop to round it all out. Superb!!!
