Medium dark pour with a small head. A little coffee, wheat, nutty taste. Not at all bitter at the end, which I like. Very drinkable beer. Brewed semi-locally to me. A total winner in my book!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance - The beer is served a deep brown tiny color with a tiny head. The head fades fast to leave almost no lace on the glass.
Smell - The aroma is light with light roast cocoa and caramel smell. A little bit of brown sugar and earth are there as well rounding out the smell.
Taste - The taste begins with a roasty taste with a bit of a caramel and cocoa sweetness. As taste moves on more sweetness comes to tongue with some loss of roast and a little bit of coffee coming in. In the end, a little bit of earth and a bit more sweetness comes to the tongue to give a slightly sweet but moderately roasty taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation level is rather low with a rather thin body and feel. The low carbonation is nice for the flavor profile and tastes, but the feel is a bit thin. Overall, it is OK Mouthfeel in the end.
Overall - An OK brown, but nothing all to exceptional.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Cloudy brown pour with a slight ruby hue, thin tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Taste is fairly sweet, rich for the low ABV, but not overly roasty or harsh. A bit sweet for the style without bitterness to balance, but nice and rich, overall pretty nice.
