Pours a deep black with a caramel colored head that lingers for a long time. Smells strongly of roasted malts, also boozy. Taste is similar, very malty taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Great beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on-tap at the Brewery.
A - Pours clear amber orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty patches of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of rich caramel malt, mild noble hops, light fruity esters, toffee and a bit of light spice. Well balanced nose with nothing really standing out.
T - Starts off with a quick noble hop bite quickly being enveloped by the strong caramel and toffee malt backbone. Some very light fruitiness and a bit of black pepper spice help round things out. Finish is bittersweet quickly fading away, leaving the palate dried long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, rich feel with a bit of residual sweetness. It is very easy to consume in large quantities.
O - Don’t see this style all that often so I am not really sure how to compare it to others I have had. It is a well balanced beer with a decent amount of bitterness for so few IBU’s. Yet another flavorful, easy drinking scratch beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad for the style but a bit too bland and boring. Very simple beer. Troegs can and does do better.
