The beer pours a dark chestnut brown with dark orange tints when held to the light. There is a half inch of light tan foam that dissipates fairly rapidly. The aroma is nutty, caramel, sweetness, yet with a fruity tang. The taste is roasted malts, very nutty, some dark caramel. It finishes dry with a light bitterness. There is a sweetness in the malt, but it does not drink sweet, there is an aftertaste of light hazelnut. It is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Very tasty, but the body doesn’t quite hold up to the taste, just a tad thin for its flavors.
