3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Nutty aroma and flavor. Just what I was expecting. It seemed to me that a lot of the small brewers at this festival were trying to be respectful of traditional european styles, but falling short of being interesting. This beer is an example of how to accomplish that feat.

(backlog recollected in abstinence) Tap tasting flight, @source downtown pub 09/2012. Tasted like a maltier UK bitter with nutty accompaniment and a watery finish. Thin palates and ethereal yeast profiles are the scourge of many sportsbar/brewpub brews: often the taste is gone before it arrives.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, notched to show a bottle don date of April 2013, served in a snifter.
Hazy dark reddish brown body; small partial head despie a vigouous pour, and most of this is soon gone.
Aroma: about spot on for style, with a nice bit of nutty roasted grains as well as sweet malts and toffee.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma, but is a bit sweeter than expected.
Feel: light body is a bit too thin. Smooth.
