This beer poured a very dark amber-brown with some reddish highlights. The thin head filmed over after only a few sips. The aroma is wonderful Musty, floral and bittersweet with a strong accent on the aroma hops. It says this beer is aggressively hopped with Northern Brewer and Centennial hops. Boy, they arent kidding! Seems like theres a boatload of them in this beer. This is like no other brown ale I have ever tasted. The flavor yields a pleasant floral bitterness with the tang of caramel sweetness. The beer is light to medium bodied, rich and creamy.
The hops control the show here, leading all the way, while the toffee malt sweetness finishes in a close second. The hops leave a bitter hint of unripe cherries on the tongue. This is a sweet brown ale thats ultra flavorful and highly enjoyable. Its nice to try something that doesnt really taste like anything youve had before.
