This is a very mild easy drinking beer with a hint chocolate but it doesnt cover the malt. A very very balanced beer with carmel, chocolate and hops!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Cortez beer festival and at the brewpub. Is dark brown, a rich hue. Stable head. Aroma is huge malt character, rich dark bread, molasses-tinged pumpernickel. Smells like a good dunkel! The flavors are totally different, though, are more English mild in character. Has a smooth and creamy character, what malts are these? They are great, sort of like Malta but better. Body is just right, light, drinkable and super yum. Very well done!

on tap 7/18/10.
dark amber brown color with a soft off white head and nice drippy rings of foam.
the aroma and flavor remind me a lot of a chocolate chip biscuit... mixed with some wood, florals, grain and a berry-like fruitiness.
it is light, crisp and easily sessionable. 6/3/6/3/13/3.1
