3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark amber body with a minimal wispy off white head. The nose is toasty and slightly sweet with just a bit of light roast coffee. The flavor is pretty good for the style, toasty, lightly nutty, a bit of coffee, minimal but noticeable hops on the finish. Pretty strong effort. A bit bigger bodied for the style than usual. Soft fizzy carbonation. Good beer, especially for the style.

On tap at the brewery as part of a sampler, this beer was one of the flight that I did not enjoy as much as the others. It is a fairly solid beer but I did not like the malt forwardness of this beer as much, there was a slight graininess that was hard to get passed. OK.
