BOD 12/19/15. Dark brown cola like pour. Slightly below normal head volume, normal lacing and retention.
Outstanding rich nose of nuts, molasses, light roast char and a hint of dark chocolate.
Light medium body with a smooth texture with a few creamy hints and aspects. Superb carbonation with a fairly effervescent middle and a nice finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is quite good and rather flavorful for a brown ale. The flavors of the nose all appear with a nutty molasses serving as the base. It begins with a wave of light roast char that hints at chocolate. The middle brings a low bitterness that fades allowing a light sweetness to emerge. Here is where chocolate makes its strongest showing over a growing toasted grain influence. The finish has a hint of dryness and a slow fade of nutty charred grain.
