This beer pors a medium brown with dark tan highlights, and a big, creamy head that I had to wait to settle. Another pour filled the glass and the head lasted, lasted, with ample lacing throughout. The first smell was a roasted malt and big hop smell, with a slight tart aroma in there. A big malt and hop well balanced taste, again with a slight tart finish. A high carbonated, creamy mouthfeel, makes this very drinkable for me, as I love the short, dry finish. Nice beer.

Muddy brown brew with roasted malt and and caramel in the nose. Mouthfeel seems a bit too carbonated and spicy on the tongue. Caramel flavors and nuts balance well with the hoppy finish. I was surprised at the amount of hops in this brew, but thats never a bad thing. A pretty good beer, but nothing to go out of the way for.

Pours a nice brown color, with a decent fluffy tan colored head that holds well. On the nose the aroma of caramel malts and hint if toffee. On the palate there is more caramel malt flavors with a fairly good balance of English east Kent Golding hops. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth. Overall an intricately malty & satisfying brew.
