The beer pours a dark chestnut brown, with just a hint of ruby. There is a short head of off-white foam. The aroma is caramel, toasted, lightly roasted, with a pleasant mineral tang. The taste follows the aromas, adding in some hazelnut. The finish is mostly dry, with a light bitterness. The beer drinks easy, a touch smooth, with a tingle of carbonation. This is a very pleasant drinking brown ale.
