Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a two finger head of thick just off white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, fading slowly to leave a good deal of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer big of a caramel and slightly bready smell mixed with a nice toffee sweetness. The overall aroma is on the sweeter side, but has some nice complimenting notes of a light earthy hop smell as well.

Taste – The taste follows the nose rather nicely. It begins with a strong sweeter taste of caramel and toffee along with a little bit of a more bready and doughy taste. These flavors create the bulk flavor of the brew and last till the end, at which time they are joined by a hint of an earthy hop and a little bit of a fruity flavor, leaving a sweet and more sugary flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. A little thicker of a body may have been slightly better overall, but all in all, for the relative sweetness of the brew, the feel was decent.

Overall –A rather sweet, but tasty amber. Well worth a try if in the mood for something a bit on the sweeter side.
