Dark brown with fair head. Not much on the aroma but some nice dark malts on the body with a thick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Drank a sample of this beer at the brewery in Santa Fe. The beer had a full brown color with a slightly lighter hue and a good-sized foamy off-white head with average carbonation, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured caramel malt, along with notes of bread and grain, and some lighter toffee and barley. The beer was slightly sweet with a blend of roasty caramel, toffee, and bread, along with a very modest grainy bitterness for balance. It was a mostly wet and watery beer with low-to-average carbonation and a smooth and lighter mouthfeel.

Dark chestnut. No head. The aroma is nutty with a hint of chocolate. Thinnish body with a very nutty character. A largely one-dimensional brew.
