Can. Cola colored. Nutty aroma. The taste adds big chocolate notes and a charred smokiness on the finish. Light and smooth mouthfeel. An excellent brown ale.

Transfer from BA review on 9-23-12-
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a dark brown beer with some red highlights when held to the light. Upon serving there was an off-white head that faded relatively fast to leave light lacing.
Smell – The smell of the brew is of roasted malt mixed with a decent dose of chocolate. Along with these aromas is some light coffee and nuttiness as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a caramel and roasted malt flavor initially. Soon some lighter chocolate notes come to the tongue. The beer at this point is on the sweeter side, but begins to bitter as the coffee and nut flavors that were detected in the nose come to the tongue. At the very end some herbal hop flavors and a light woodiness comes to the tongue to round down some of the sweet even more.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is smooth and a little on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is slightly below average. It has a rather nice feel for the taste and is rather drinkable.
Overall – A decent brown, but nothing too-too extraordinary. Worth a try if you have never had it.

Appearance was clear ruby brown with creamy diminishing tan 1/2 finger head , rings of lacing. Aromas are simple brown sugar, nuts, toast, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Taste was soft sweet toffee, caramel, chocolate, nutty bready, soft roasty backend. Palate was soft creamy smooth CO2 with light-medium body, then an average length smooth off dry balanced malt finish. A wonderful example of an American Brown style.
