Dark brown reddish color with a two fingers head with low retention.
Malty and grainy aroma with hints of English hops.
Nutty and lightly spiced flavor on a malty caramel base. Hints of pine, guaranĂ¡, roasted coffee and chocolate. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
Not extraordinary but this is tasty brown ale. A notch above average for the style, more hoppy and less sweet.

From twelve ounce bottle freshness dated to September 2013.

Scent is bready and sweet. Pours deep ruddy brown with large beige head that lasted a moderate time. Head falls to light film with spotty lacing of glass.
Taste is initially sharp almost medicinal but quickly converts to s slightly sweet nutmeg clove vibe. a lot of roasted flavors, coffee. Hoppier than English versions I've sampled.
