On tap @ the brewpub. Served in pint glass.

A - Poured dark brown with a thin layer of cream coloured head.

S - Roast, nuttiness, caramel.

T - A big nuttiness with caramel, roast and hints of chocolate. Fairly sweet overall with a light bitterness.

M - Light to medium body with moderate carbonation.

O - Fairly average for a nut brown but still easy drinking and enjoyable.
