Aromas of toasted malts and caramel, with hints of nuts and suggestions of coffee. When held to the light, the pour is a clear but dark reddish-brown with a short-lived tan head and minimal lacing.

The flavor is text book nut brown with a light roast, good bit of nuttiness, a little earthy bitterness. Overall very drinkable and a good session brew.
