22oz bottle into SN tulip shaped pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark ruddy brown with three or four fingers of thick dark tan head that slowly faded into a thick greasy film leaving tons of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Very roasted smelling with hints of toasted nuts and smoke. Caramel and sweet malts poke through, and I get a hint of toffee and cocoa as well.
T: Follows the nose with clean and smoky notes of sweet malts, roasted grains, toasted nuts, light cocoa, toffee and caramel. The finish is bitter with notes of leafy, piney, hops. Flavors are all well balanced and smooth. The aftertaste has the suggestion of coffee, but it’s light.
M: Medium-full body, smooth and easy drinking mouthfeel, and soft and clean carbonation. Drink very well. Chewy enough to satisfy but not too heavy to not have with a meal.
O: A very flavorful and easy to drink beer. Flavors are rich and easy and the go down smooth. A brewery I will definitely keep my eye on.
