Thanks goes out to TheRealBastard for this interesting extra. I had not heard about this brewery until I received this bottle and it seems this beer was just added too.

The Beer comes in a 750ml olive green bottle with just a cork, no cage, and no bottle cap either (although this could just be my bottle).

I have never poured a beer into my Duvel tulip but for some reason I thought it would be fun with this one, so here we go…

Pours a dark caramel color with close to two fingers of lightly tanned foam. Tiny bubbles, soft, and slowly receding head.

The aroma seems to me like a slightly more roasted nut brown ale. Very nutty on the nose with cocoa powder, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, sugar cookies, and milk chocolate. A subtle, soft, but intriguing bouquet of sweet chocolate goodness. There are some hints of bitter-sweet chocolate, lactose, chocolate syrup, warm milk, and a bit of butterscotch too. I got some roasted barley as I went in to take my first sip. Maybe a little earthiness from the hops.

The taste is similar to the aroma, very subtle too but that makes this one easy to drink. Hints of roasted barley, nutty malts, milk chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla in the finish. In the second sip I swear this on has some oats. Lightly roasted coffee comes through in the middle. Oh, so far I’m a little torn on the score. On one side I wish it could be a little more robust and flavorful but I’m enjoying the simplicity and easy-drinking-feel on this one. Some days a beer just hits the spot.

The texture is really good, feels like this one has some oats, can taste them too. Lightly carbonated but very creamy and soft on the palate. Finishes a little dry which works really well since it cleans away the sweetness and prepares you for the next sip rather quickly. Beer gets a little thin when it gets closer to room temp.

Drinkability is pretty high since it is not overly sweet; it feels light on the stomach too.

I liked this one, a good surprise.
