3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a sturdy dark brown color with a good sustaining fingerís worth of white foamy head. Moderate lace.
The aroma had some bread, caramel/toffee, roasted nuts, light cocoa powder, light toast. Earthy/grassy hops, light wood and ended with what I thought was some nutmeg. Different, but I didnít mind.
The flavor brought forth the sweet and the roast fairly nice and richly turned it towards the aftertaste. Finish got a little sticky as that spice (if it was the nutmeg) didnít seem to show any presence.
The feel was about medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, nice brown ale. Was that really nutmeg in this? Not sure.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of bread, caramel, toffee, hints of slight nutty notes into a bit of earth, some yeasty notes, spice. Taste is a mix of slight nuts pretty hidden, some caramel, bread, toffee, yeasty spice, some slight herbal notes, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

Slightly sweet caramel and nut nose. Taste is light to moderately sweet, lightly bitter; light toffee, some dark fruit and nuts. Very drinkable. Solid.
