3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a deep dark amber almost brown color with a fingerís worth of a white clean head.
The aroma was nutty, with a light roast, chocolate and some earthiness.
The flavor leads with a fair crisp nutty to caramel and toffee blend. Moderate doughy/cracker-like taste leads into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Roastiness seems to be tamed by the malts smoothing things out.
Overall, nicely done brown ale that I would have again.
