Nose if somewhat roast and brown bready with fruity yeast notes, spice, and bubblegum. Pours murky brown with not much of a head. The flavor is also fruity and spicy with a good dose of bubble gum, chocolate and light toast/roast notes. Soft sweetness/spicy yeast notes round out the finish. Medium to lively carbonation, lighter than expected body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/11/10 On draft at the taproom. Aroma is very sharp and peppery with a yeast domanace over a very light touch of chocolate. Appearace is hazy light brown with a perfect off-white head and great lacing. Flavor is less sharp, with true nutty and a touch more chocolately note coming from an all-malt flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium-high spritzy carb texture. Overall, this has almost the nose of a Belgian paired with the flavor of an English Brown.
