Best Quote During Tasting
I cried when Marshall's dad died on How I Met Your Mother but not when my achilles exploded.
|Aroma - Dark caramel, molasses, bread crust, if I'm being honest, I'd say toasted almonds but we all know they're walnuts. No hops or yeast perceptible.|
|Appearance - The beer pours a clear, deep brown with amber highlights where the ligh shines through. The off-white head was thin and left very quickly once poured.|
|Flavor - Overall it's very "toasty." Getting toasted walnuts, toasted malts and bread crust. Again, no hops but the yeast does give it some subtle fruitiness. The finish is nice and crisp.|
|Mouthfeel - Medium+ body with medium carbonation.|
Overall Impression - Solid beer. I can't say that I see myself picking this one up regularly but I will definitely say that I think this would pair awesomely with some roasted chicken or nutty cheeses. As a matter of fact, the more I think about it, this beer would be awesome to pair with a lot of things.
|Aroma - A good amount of nuttiness with a lot of wheat characteristics. Fair amount of sweetness that blends well with the bread and walnut notes.|
|Appearance - Deep copper to brown with some amber highlights in the light. Poured with almost no head.|
|Flavor - It's a bit sweeter than expected. Plenty of sweetness from the malt, maybe a bit of dark fruits mixed in as well. The main player here is obviously the nuttiness from the walnuts.|
|Mouthfeel - Medium body and medium+ carbonation. Very smooth finish.|
Overall Impression - I'm not sure why more people don't combine these flavors. It's got a really great comfort food feeling to it. It might sound weird, but it's the beer you'd expect your grandma to make if she were to trade in her baking equipment for brewing equipment. I mean that in the best way possible obviously. Have this one with dinner or dessert one night, you won't be disappointed.
