3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Co-rated by Scraff... Clear, mahogany ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head.
Very well retained with nice, creamy, thick lacing. Chocolatey aroma with notes of cashews, chocolate chip cookie dough and dark breads. The flavor, although well-balanced and well-bittered, is a bit of a let down. Smells better than it tastes. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Good brew, overall.

Flavor was similarly malty with lots of biscuits and bread with a bit of caramel sweetness to round out the beer.
