Sweet, brown sugar/molasses aroma and flavor. Can also smell some leafy, herbal aroma or something. Toasty brown malt flavor, and herbal flavor. Another unique flavor and aroma; closest thing I can think of to describe it is "hair salon perm"--but that’s not quite right.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9oz bottle 8/11/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-44° in Mug-Pours dark brown almost black with a small head that dissipated into nothing. Aroma of malts, toffee, coffee, and slight smoke. Taste of the same with a bit of chocolate on the back end. I was expecting worse from this light bodied brew but it was not too shabby.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts with hints of coffee. Taste is malty sweet with a roasted malt bitterness and light hop bitterness that is dry. Medium body and nice carbonation leave a pleasing sensation on the palate. This is a very well done beer and highly recommended.
