Bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a dark brown with thin spotty tan head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Taste is the same with weird carbonation.

Caramel and slight chocolate aromas, no big hitters. Small off white head, lasting. Smooth mouth feel, low carbonation. Low sweetness, low bitters at end of taste range. Leaving the mouth at the beginning stages of a dry. I imagine the palate profile will get better with warmth. But I'm ending the review.

I preface this with the fact that I am not a beer snob, nor will I turn down free beer... normally. However, this beer was just... terrible. The chocolate-toffee taste it claims is laughable. It literally tastes like somebody stirred a tablespoon of brown sugar in a budweiser and rebottled it. A subpar peer compared to other 8 dollar six packs. Won’t drink this ever again, even if it’s free.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a deep cola brown with honey coloured highlights at the edge and a small off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, flowers, dark bread, pie crust and raisins. Taste is soft fruit at the start that quickly resolves into rich caramel and milk chocolate and a light roast bitterness. Lightly spicy aftertaste. Good US brown.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a medium to dark mahogany brown, with a beige head.
Quite roasted, malty, faintly sour aroma, toffee, diacetyl, hops.
Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty, roasted, slightly watery taste, caramel, chocolate, hops, faintly sour?
This feels more like a dark lager than a brown ale. (2014-01-31)

Bottle, label says 5.6% ABV. 10C. Dark brown with a beige head that fades to a coat. Aroma of spiced chocolate and singed caramel. Moderately sweet with toffee, chocolate and spices. Pleasant enough.

Reviewed from notes: had in NOLA on draught when there last year. Pours a very dark brown with ivory almost tan head. Bread, caramel malt, and some dark fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a semi-sweet chocolate note.
