What the brewers say

“Malty, toasty, earthy, citrusy, with hints of bitter chocolate, dark roasted coffee.”

What our panel thought

“A woody, slightly smoky aroma rounded out by milk chocolate and dark bread. Light body for a sessionable mouthfeel. Hoppy bitterness grows and creates a drying finish. Ends clean and well punctuated, professionally constructed.”

What our editors thought

“Toasty and familiar nose, comforting with general bready and citrus notes that pull tightly together. Light spicy hops offer a counterpoint to the malt in the flavor, subtle and refined.”
