Aroma: Very malty aromas, with dark and crispy scents. Caramel and dark fruit also comes in on the back end of the scent.
Appearance: Very dark brown, with a good carbonation. The head was tan and a bit rocky, but came down and left a bubbly film over the beer.
Flavor: Very malty, without much hops. The flavor is excellent. There are hits of toasted malts, caramel, and some rich toffee flavors.
Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue, the carbonation is a bit powerful, but works well with this brew. The flavor brings up the weight a bit, and the lack of hops lets it settle nicely on the palate.
Overall Impression: We are both fans of this beer. It drinks well and doesn’t sit too heavy.
