Om draught at The Girl & The Goat. Dark brown color with a thin tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

A lightly hazed dark amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, light sweet nutty malt with grassy hops, not bad. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with light mineral notes, grassy hops, OK. On tap at brewery.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap at Half Acre. Clear copper with a lacy tan topper. Aroma of nuts, caramel, dark malts and some bready notes. Taste is odd, kinda esb-ish with roasted malts, nuts, dark fruit and a zippy finish that packs a little bitter with it.

Always been an interesting beer. I think it has many layers of flavors...maybe nuts maybe light smoke... It's a change up from their aggressive hop beers , which are amazing, this turns that down but still has a slight presence in the taste... Slight...
