pours a nice light mahogany color

good nose with tones of grains, malts, and bits of toffee. Nose is solid and pretty straight forward

lighter feel that is nice and pleasant with some caramel and toffee with some malts as well

this is a session nice beer. Some good tones but they are lacking some depth

I drank this on tap into a tasting glass.

The beer pours a clear light brown with a off white/tan head that rises a couple fingers, good retention and lacing.

The aroma bursts with tons of sweetness. There is caramel, toffee, mixed with a little toastiness.

The taste is pretty much spot on with the aroma, lots of sweet toffee notes with a toasted finish. Its a little too sweet for me and its got a slight alcohol taste to me, which is surprising giving the abv.

The biggest problem with this beer is the feel, super light.

Drinkability is ok, a little too sweet for me.

On tap at Revolution in Chicago.

Nutty in the nose with aromas of toffee and caramel. Very light in body, the beer mirrors the nose in the mouth with the addition of a lightt coffee flavor.

Very pleasant and an excellent lunch beer, it's worth a pint to accompany a noonday sandwich.

Growler courtesy of Dunt on BA. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a dark clear brownish color with the slightest tinge of red. Starts with a 1-2 finger head of tan that quickly settles out to form a collar around the glass. The nose has notes of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate all pretty subtle. Some slight lace left on the glass. Medium/light mouthfeel. A very easy drinking beer with light notes of coffee, caramel, and roast. Not as flavorful as I was holing for but a nice drinker nonetheless.
