On tap at the brewpub. Malty sweet aroma. Nutty with chocolate and dusty grain. Brown sugar and very little hops. Clean sweet nose overall. Hazy coppery amber with thin foamy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with tons of malty flavor, brown sugar and caramel, grain, and chocolate malt. Nutty with alcoholic sweetness and a touch of banana and other esters. Get distinctive brown ale character and doppelbock, too. The merged well. Sweet finish with a bit of nutty bitterness. Sweet after.
