Bottle - 1F slightly tan head, medium brown in color. Little heavy in carbonation, otherwise ok mouthfeel, fairly balanced for the style. Malt comes through on the finish and hangs around a bit then alcohol shows up for a bit and dissipates, great lacing.

Pours a reddish brown. Caramel malt in the aroma. Taste is nutty and toasty malt. Subtle hop presence in the finish. Seems just a little bit thin.

Pours crayon craola brown. It is brown and tasty and has a good taste. Only thing is if drunken with food or othner beer taste is lost or seems altered. Weak head that is different in each bottle not consistent and not a favorite. Had in 12 oz. bottle probably wont buy again aunless I am forced to or a hot girl wants to drink it and demands it.

The hops are a little stinky here. It has an amber brown appearance. Good malt character followed by dry hop. More of a Belgian brown. This one is not a real hooter.
