Nice malty, sweet flavor. Low bitterness (? IBU 21). Too much carbonation; I open it early and let the carb settle out.

Appearance: Massive, coarse and persistent tan head crowns an opaque, dark amber body. Fine, scattered lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: An unexpected punch of herbal and grassy hops dominate the aroma. This is not a hoppy beer, by any means, but it is noticeable, and surprising for the style. Nutty, toasted malts are also present, but are still overshadowed by the admittedly modest hops.

Taste: Modest, slightly earthy hops vie against toasted malts. The malts carry a mildly nutty flavor throughout. Bitter cocoa and earth offer an interesting counterpoint. Toasted nut flavors bring the taste to a close and linger on well after.

Mouth feel: Smooth, full, quite soft to the taste.

Drinkability/notes: A decent and drinkable example.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass longneck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium chalice.
