Tap pour@Braukunst Live ’15 - SA, danke either motelpogo or oldmanriver... Smells like pancakes drizzled with caramelised maple syrup. Seamy, easygoing silky mouthfeel, feeding you a liquid dessert of toffee, milk chocolate cake spiked with hoppy red berries. Mellow & nice.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Deep chestnut and mahogany pour with a small eggshell head that left very little in terms of lacing. Aroma is muted. Roasted malt, nuttiness, and a hint of caramel. Flavor is so much better than its nose. Cocoa, light coffee notes, almond and cashew, char, and vanilla. Moderate mouthfeel and mild alcohol...easy drinkin’. Solid.

Deep brown color. Nice caramel and toasted malt notes. Seems to be more like a porter than a regular brown ale, but a very tasty one.
