The aroma is sweet, with a touch of burnt marshmallow and hazelnut. The beer itself is a clear brown with reddish tints reminiscent of a hazy sunrise. The flavor remains sweet, but hardly cloying. There are touches of caramel along with maple syrup and a hazelnut spice, maybe some sweet dates and a touch of espresso macchiato. The balance in this beer really works and makes it very drinkable. There are lots of interesting flavors, all working in harmony. As Brown Ales go, this one is certainly interesting and a great beer for either a cool or cold evening tipple.
