Dark brown color with huge beige head. Aroma is nutty with fudge and toasted malt. Taste has also toasted malts and nuts with a touch of caramel. Very balanced overall. Slightly sweet at first but finishes with an earthy and nutty bitterness. Medium body with high effervescence. Overall it’s a decent, easy drinking brown ale.
