Semi-translucent and amber mahogany in color with a well retained khaki white head. Nuts in brown bread make aromatic strives, along with honeyed maple wood and pistachio cacao. Milky toffee and alluring caramel ribbons join the fuller flavored and lessened carbonation substance. Sweet caramel cream rides in with dates and brown sugar, eventually getting folded into brown bread. Whole wheat is a sweet treat and the honeyed hazelnuts play out well with the admirable noble hopping that’s reminiscent of dirty peppercorn. Somber and forcefully structured mouthfeel, finishing with hallertauer, brown bread and darkened grahams.
