On tap @ Henrik. This is a deep and dark brown looking one. It also has a nice super lacing dense and creamy beige top. It’s both candy sweet and chocolaty on the nose this. Hoppy, yeah, and it has a fruity red-fruit sweetness also. Smells nice if not extreme. Tastes nice also. Immediately it feels a bit astringent on the mouthfeel. Light oily on the texture and it has a near creamy growing carbonation level. Soft nutty chocolaty bitterness in the taste with traces of coffee and wood. A little dry cocoa powder also present here before it ends in a a acidic near wood sour finish and aftertaste. Solid stuff. 13.02.2014

On tap at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is a sienna shade of brown with a soapy head. The aroma brings malt, sourdough bread, biscuits. Similar flavor, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking with moderately low carbonation. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed at the Brewery June 2013.
The appearance had a dark brown body with less than a finger of an off white slightly foamy head, a decent amount of lacing graces the sides of the glass.
The smell was nutty, some coffee, some light chocolate, malts, bread all coming through in a sort of way.
The taste was mainly sweet, roasty and dry through the previously mentioned flavors, sweet dry aftertaste and finish.
The palate sat about a medium, sessionable, adequately carbonated and also is good to me as well, slightly crisp.
Overall, I say this is good for the style and good for me as I would have this again.
