Pour is a slightly lighter brown body than I was expecting with a nice head and some lacing. The lack of lacing may have been due to the temperature that this was presented (too cold), so I am happy to give it the benefit of the doubt.
As it warms the aroma is all malty, nuttiness – very nice. The aroma is followed quickly by a complimentary sweetness in the taste. A really spectacular nut/malt brown ale feel. In fact, to get a real feel for what this beer does best, it would need to be re-categorized into the brown ale group. A little hop bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is beautiful with a rounded sweetness doing a stunning number on the tongue and cheeks.
Very, very satisfying in the ABV department, and with it an amazingly drinkability to go along with that. This is a great beer!
