4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9/3/09 from 22oz Bottle. Aroma is excellent and highly unique. You first catch a sweet cream/vanilla note, and as you press your nose further into the glass you catch caramel, Vienna roast and light peppery notes. Appearance is clear copper with a fluffy cream colored head. Flavor is more roast dominant, but still with substantial sweetness and a more floral medium bittering than one would expect from the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with a medium carb texture and light graininess. Overall, a deceptively complex beer that rewards those who pay attention to their palate and taste with their nose.
