3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the Winterfest 2011 in St Paul, MN. Pours a hazy caramel brown colored brew with a decent sized beige head that has excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted Munich and caramel malt, some light biscuit, light floral hops and some light chocolate. Taste is medium to semi-full bodied texture, flavors of toasted dark brown malt, a hint of toffee and some light chocolate. Finish is semi-sweet, malty caramel yet still retains some toasted malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. One of the sweeter brown ales I’ve tried.
