Draft. A dark chestnut colored beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, yeast, wood, and wine. The flavor is sweet - a bit too sweet, with notes of malt, caramel, spices, nuts, yeast, and wood, leading to a dry spicy finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT. Pours a deep dark hazy brown with a thinning head. Aroma is a bit minty earthy bubblegummy phenolics, Belgian yeasty character, toffee, dry roast and toast with some chocolate tones, vanilla, and brown baked/toasted malts- some cookiedough. Flavor is a touch fruity with earth, mineral and sweet nutty chocolate malts, more phenolic slight plastic notes, leather, and some menthol crystal slightly offwith a slight buttery thing going on and cherry cola on the finish. Strange and a bit off overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed on tap at The Stable. This is as big a brown ale as I can remember having. It looks quite distinctive with a big thick head on a dark caramel colored body. Aroma is sweet with brown sugar and caramel along with some fruit. Flavor is also quite sweet with lots of alcohol noted. Plenty of sugary caramel. Too high of an ABV is a drawback for me but lovers of bigger beers will enjoy this one.
