Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a foamy 3 finger light tan head. Aroma is hoppy underlaid by something suggesting funk. Med + body. Flavor has a bit of chocolate, lots of mixed hop. As it flows away, it goes less chocolate, fairly earthy, and maybe yet a bit funky. Funky. Earthy. Who can tell? Finishes dry, bitter, tasty.

Brown ale är någon av mina favoritsorter men det här kan mycket väl ha varit den bästa brown alen jag någonsin druckit. Smaken var maltig och söt med en underbar balans. Slutsats: seriöst bra brown ale.
