tmoreau (4505) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2012
On tap and Mug Club served at the Yorktown brewpub, showing a deepest brown color with some short lived, light tan head foam, and minimal dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was roasty, coffee, light smoke & char, a bit of graham cracker scent, and a touch of toffee. The flavor followed with moderate hop bitterness, medium body, good carbonation, a hint of treacly sweetness, but mainly a dry and crisp character that was nicely complementary with the late afternoon appetizers. Also very drinkable!
