Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Light brown color; light easily passes through.

Nice offwhite head; decent lacing.

Nuts & coffee in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Not a ton of flavor here, hints of coffee & nuts but mostly on the watery side. Smells better than it tastes.

12oz. Bottle

Pours a nice brown color, nice carbonation, with a nice fizzy/small off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, nice roastyness note. The taste is malty, very nice roasty note. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Honestly, it's a sub-par brown. Great company, just not such a good beer
