3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Burgers & Brew. Brown in color with a khaki head. Nose is big on the caramel malts, toffee, and chocolate. Really nice vanilla, too. Pretty creamy and malt forward. Nice sweetness to it all the way through. Mild floral hops, some toasted nuts, and milk chocolate. Quite nice, particularly for a style I don’t normally like.

Tap at the Davis venue. Pours dark ruddy brown (7.7%) with a creamy tan head. Aroma seems pine. Med body or better. Flavor is nutty malty, touch of chocolate and maybe pine. Drier than not. Seems to develop a hint of phenolic eartth, which adds interest. Good drink.
