3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2015 12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is a bit funky and earthy with a noted maltiness and roasted nuts, some peanut butter, and bread toast. It pours a clear, rich caramel hue with a white, sudsy head that has a mild soapy retention and lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet, a bit more sweet than bitter.It?s slick with a zippy carbonation and a medium body that?s dominant flavor is caramel and nuts with a backing note of bread crust The finish is smooth and h as a citrus zest to it that turns malty and nutty. It?s aftertaste is light and mellow with flavors of bread, nuts, earth and a note of slightly burnt molasses.

Rusty copper pour. Nose of deep nutty toasted malt, mild orange, and faint herbal hops. Flavor is toasted and caramel malt with toasted nut, orange, and mild diacetyl. Very fall like and definitely on the toasty end of the spectrum.
