Light body and taste. Brown color on a white head. Mild cocoa notes. Coffee hints. Rather boring but not bad. Probably had too many big beers before this puppy

Bottle. Subtle chocolate and malt flavors. Very smooth and not too sweet, but still with no edge of bitterness. Good finish and aftertaste. Well-balanced.

Pours dark amber with a huge, foamy, off-white head that stays 'til Jesus comes! Nose is malty and has hints of molasses. Taste is predominately sweet. A bit of a coffee note on the palate. Medium (pushing full) body. Lively carbonation. Honey finish. Very nice.

Pour is dark brown with copper edged, mostly clear with a tight off white head. Nose is toasted grain, sweet malt, and brown sugar. Taste has less grain and a hint musky, a bit sweet, brown sugar, stronger carb, flavors get a hint muted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of sweet caramel, mixed with notes of chocolate, and sweet malt. Nut brown color with shades of dark orange, with a unique white head. First taste is muted chocolate and sweet malt. Sweetness is muted quickly with an average bitterness. Finishes smooth with a balanced aftertaste. Might be more enjoyable in fall but nice beer.

[Bottle] Brown in color with a tint of orange to it. Very little head on top. Sweet and sticky aroma of sweet breads, caramel and raisins. Flavor notes include bread, light brown sugar, toffee and some nut. Syrupy, but not cloying. Another good one from this brewery.
