  • A vigorous pour yields a half glass of tan foam that starts frothy but lightens up as it retreats. Clear in color there is minimal lacing.

    Aroma is nutty and intensely so up front. Roasted malt, toffee, and a touch bready. Hops are tough for me to make out; floral maybe.

    Taste brings out more of the dark malt. Sweet, toffee to start but roasted malt come in the middle with it finishing with some nuttiness and bread. Bitterness comes in the finish too bud fades nicely, good balance for all the malt.

    Body is on the light side with moderate carbonation.

    Maybe a little to small for the style. I find this to be crisp and refreshing; something that would be good even during the warmer months with a twist: the dark malts. Definitely a keeper for me as the lightness was unexpected but delicious. Enjoy!
