Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass.
Color is a golden bronze. The beer looks dark, but you can see right through it. Pours a light tan head that leaves great lacing.
Smell is very malty. Roasted malts with hints of carmel. Taste is of roasted nuts and the same hint of carmel. The taste is mainly malty, but there are some slight earthy hops present.
Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy. The beer goes down with a slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall this beer is easy to drink and could be a wonderful session beer. It is a great beer, however the taste becomes more and more of a typical lager after a while, and I am more of a fan of ales.
