Poured from a pitcher into a cold pint glass. Smells slightly malty but overall a very subdued aroma. Great dark brown color with a soft gentle tan head. Taste is of malts and nuts with a forgettable finish. Overall good plan but disappointing execution.

Tap. Copper pour with a small ring of head. Faint aroma of cherries, nuts, caramel, and toast. Tastes watery and boring. Very light caramel and cherry. Thin body. Eh.

Surprisingly good for a Granite City brew! Very forward caramel, nutty, toasty flavor that is very enjoyable. Thinnish body but very flavorful and tasty brew indeed. Refreshing. Nice darkish brown color too.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap poured into a 24 oz glass stein. The aroma is a very mild somewhere in between toasty and burnt caramel malt. The hazy red-brown (caramel?) colored beer is topped with a very light white head which retains a medium-thin ring and leaves a fairly clear glass. The taste is overall mellow with a medium sweetness and a medium light bitter. There’s an above average, soft carbonation to the medium malty body with a light / creamy thin texture. A roasted caramel and grain come through at the finish with a touch of nuts and a bit of chocolate. It’s a pretty clean finish with a slight caramel aftertaste.

On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. Medium old-penny brown, miniscule head. Bready malts, more nutty than chocolatey, oddly. If I were guessing, I’d peg this as a brown ale.
