On draught at the Collins Pub, appearmence is dark, ruddy brown with an off-white head that leaves light, scattered lace.

Smell is roasted nuts, caramel, marscapone.

Taste is similarly balanced, complex. Not as sweet as the nose, which is the perfect combo.

Mouthfeel is very dry, medium bodied.

Drinkability is good, a very solid brow, love the roastier approach.

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a clean, barely translucent brown with just a thin cap of light brown head that had low retention and OK lacing.

The aroma was mostly rich malts, with a bit of nuttiness and a trace of roast in the background. On the tongue, the roast is much more forward than in the aroma. It has a well-balanced taste, solid malts, just a trace of hops and, a bit surprisingly, not very much sweetness, which a lot of examples of this this style seem to have.

The body was fairly typical, full without being heavy, and had a clean finish. Drinkability was very good, I could easily sip several of these on a rainy Northwest afternoon.

Overall, another pretty good beer from this new brewery. Worth seeking out if you live in, or are visiting, the north (Puget) sound region.
