3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, we’ll retained, tiny bubbled light beige head, with some lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is sweet malts, with hints of cherry, fig, hints of roasted malts with light cocoa, minimal hops....taste is moderately sweet malts, with dried fruits, toffee/caramel, cereal, finishing dry and moderately bitter......mouth feel medium body,minimal astringency, mild acid. This misses the style ever so slightly. The malts, while mostly dominant, are not quite deep enough in complexity. Also the hops are a bit too forward. An increase in the malt bill, and a change or a lowering of the hops used would improve what is already a nice beer. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

On tap. Served a dark brown color with a nice thick tan head and some lacing. Aroma of malt, primarily dark fruit and bit of spice. taste of thick malt, dark fruit with some toffee and just a bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. A solid body, a bit crisp and very smooth. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer to relax with.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very complex with a clean finish. Caramel notes with a hint of smoke. Not as hop-heavy as many Summit beers - just right.

I get some nuts, roasty malt, and maybe some molasses. Tastes like a brown ale. I like brown ales.
