Dark brown color. Medium body. Smooth and slightly creamy. Good sweet caramel notes with a light roast a D decent floral hop notes. Malt is more than hops. Hops give a nice compliment to the malt.

Pours an effervescent ruby tinged chestnut with 3+ fingers of tan head. Nice lacing & head retention

S: Brown bread & a little carob

T: Follows the nose, a little herbal & wood hops as well, a little anise as well. Cocoa & brown bread as this warms, a little more herbal hops as well, dryness too. Finishes dry with brown bread woody hops & carob


MF: Medium body, modest carbonation, really complements the beer style

Drinks pretty darn easy, a very nice take on the style, probably buying this again soon

Poured gently at 47°F from a 12oz can (canned on 02May16) into a Pilsner glass. Consumed on 21Jun16.
SMELL:  Mild aromas of sweet chocolate, graham cracker, biscuits, and bittersweet coffee are balanced by subtle aromas of bitter roasted malts, earthy hops, and floral hops.
4.25 out of 5
TASTE: Mild flavors of sweet chocolate balanced by mild bittersweet coffee flavors first flow on to the palate. The bitterness is quickly strengthened by mild flavors of roasted malts while the sweetness is simultaneously increased by mild flavors of graham cracker. Mild biscuit flavors and subtle earthy and floral hop flavors finish off the taste profile as all previous flavors persist.
4 out of 5
NOTE: Granted that this is only my third of the style, it is the one that I have tasted. This was slightly stronger than the previous ones that I have had, which helped the overall rating. This was wonderfully balanced, maybe even a little too balanced. I was hoping for a sweeter tasting brew that would have mocked the sweetness in the aromas. This is a very easy drinking beer. I hope these guys will consider distribution to Texas soon.

Beautiful black color like a porter, almost no head. Super subtle smell. The flavor is more malt than hops and I get an odd grain/hay flavor that I can't quite place. Good, but not great in my book. Tasty, drinkable, but not as complex as I would like it to be.
