Seattle review dump.

A- Bright and bold ruby pour from the draft to a mini snifter. A small off white layer forms atop the brew before dying out completely. Spotty lace.

S- Toasty and bready grains are the focus of the aroma and the star of this brew. Nutty, toasted and caramel grains joined by hints of dark dried fruits and earthy, pine hops.

T- Showcases the malts rich flavors without being over sweet, caramelized or distractingly grainy with toasty, bready, nutty and slight cocoa hints. The hop bills bring balance alongside some dark fruits like plum and raisin from the yeast. Pine, orange, apricot and earthy hop notes.

MF- A silky smooth medium body with a creamy and frothy texture. The carbonation is at a moderate level and it all ends with a light pine bitterness.

Beers like this are even better in a world saturated with insanely juicy IPAs and so many of them. The malts, yeast and hops all play their roles and this shows good brewing skills all around.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: rich, hazy amber hue with a thin finger of ivory foam. Color is spot-on, though more head would be nice.

Smell: mild; relatively sweet and caramelly. Not too bad.

Taste: sweetish, caramelly and malty; very little of the biscuity character that I don't typically love in the style. Surprisingly, this beer works for me.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: a little too heavy to be super-drinkable, but in general a good example of the style.
