3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. A clear, brown beer with a small off-white head. Lightly roasted aroma, nuts, some caramel and a little hoppy touch in the aroma. Itís quite dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation and flavors of roasted malts and some coffee. A lightly piney, bitter touch in the back. A bit short finish. Too boring for me. 130815

Brown in color with a khaki head. Nose is somewhat sweet and nutty. Decent toast and cocoa aromas, some roast, toffee, and a light earthiness. Hints of fruit esters, too. The flavor is okay. Some roasted malt, toast, bread, and light toffee sweetness. Mild coffee, chocolate, and very light fruit notes. A bit of earthy hop flavor and bitterness.

Brown pour with thin head. Mild easy to drink. Faint nose. Nutty notes, light body. Inoffensive but nothing to write home about.

Sampled at the brewery...i thought it was pretty decent. Nice roasty nutty flavor that lingers and has a good bit of hop. More refreshing that I would have guessed, nice overall balance.
