What the brewer says

“A full-bod­ied, malt-for­ward brown ale that is smooth and rich but highly drink­able. Notes of caramel, tof­fee, and choco­late are prom­i­nent in the fla­vor and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Toasty bread crust with a bit of Toot­sie Roll, bis­cuit, and caramel. Tof­fee and some fruity es­ters of plum and cherry. A slight earth­i­ness. Pleas­ant yeast es­ters, woody hops.” Fla­vor: “Mod­er­ate toasty malt with caramel and tof­fee. Apri­cot and cherry es­ters add some per­ceived sweet­ness. Very malt-fo­cused. Mod­er­ate sweet­ness fades into a sub­tle lin­ger­ing bit­ter­ness. For the ini­tial sweet­ness, this beer fin­ishes sur­pris­ingly dry. Woody hops are fairly re­strained. Full-bod­ied, bal­anced fin­ish.” Over­all: “Very malt-fo­cused with low hops bit­ter­ness. A bit of dark-fruit es­ters plays nicely with the malt. Pretty solid brown with a nice es­ter pro­file. Al­most push­ing the am­ber side of things. Al­most comes off as this cu­ri­ous hy­brid be­tween an English brown and small, re­strained Bel­gian dubbel. A nice change-of-pace beer that of­fers a fresh take on the brown.”
