3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Deep mahogany, moderate to large frothy light beige head, very nice lacing. Meaty malty nose, faint nuttiness. Big malty start, pale roast, nutty, with faint pithy hops. Has a decent amount of sweetness to it, feels a bit dry. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. Sweet malty finish, slight biscuit, doughy, nutty, and bready. Very little hop bite coming in after the finish, but otherwise it seems well balanced. Seems like a nice hefty Amber Ale. Perhaps even a little chocolate malt at the very end. Enjoyable!
