Rooster (Evil Czech)

This brown ale was paired with a hearty stew for course two of the Evil Czech's Second Annual Stalin's Dark Side Release Feast. It was a perfect pairing in my opinion.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark brown brew had a creamy off-white head. It had a strong biscuit and nutty smell to it. It smelled a little smoky to me, but I didn't get a great whiff before my aromatic and delicious stew arrived.

Taste: This was dry, biscuity and nutty. It wasn't as sweet as some browns, but had enough malty sweetness to balance the spicy stew.

From the Evil Czech site:
Named after the lead bison bull at Rooster Hill Farm, Rooster shows off a bold dark brown color with a creamy, persistent head. Rooster packs everything you expect in a nut brown ale and more, almost resembling its traditional British cousin, thanks to the use of Maris Otter malt. You will find smooth taste with a prominent presence of toffee and nuts, a satisfying finish, and just a hint of sweetness. A brown ale that is fulfilling without being filling.
