Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a nice post-work evening. First beer from NE! Appearance is dark brown with not much head. Aroma is faint, nothing really there. Taste is malty, but not syrupy malty, nice grainy element. Finish is lightly dry, decent stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Pours a medium, light beige head, with slight lacing, over a clear, brown (SRM 20) body......nose is light cocoa, chocolate, light toffee/caramel, minimal hops, minimal esters, balance to the malts......taste is slightly sweet with light toffee/caramel, hints of cocoa, chocolate, finishing with hints of hop bitterness......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, light carbonation. The malt backbone is very light in both aroma and flavor. As such, while this is a nice beer, it almost misses the true style. It needs a rework of the malt back bone, with much more caramel/crystal added. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers light brown head, light brown color, clear, Aroma: nutty, light citrus, light vanilla, light chocolate, slight molasses. Palate: medium light body, average carbonation, slightly oily texture, light citrus bitter finish. Taste: sweet nutty and caramel sweetness with slight notes of vanilla and chocolate intermixed, very subtle citrus bitterness on the end. Overall, very drinkable, very smooth, vanilla is interesting. Really nice beer, appearance is a little off for me.

Light coffee in both taste and smell. Good bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Good beer but maybe a little empty in taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, earth, toffee into a bit of grain, slight toast into some watery caramel. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, cocoa into a bit of toast, slight yeast into a bit of grain, touch of spice, finishing sweet, dry.
