COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet dark ale, medium body with chocolate and coffee overtones. Full flavored, but not as rich and heavy as most stouts and porters.

Cybercat (3218) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a nearly opaque dark chocolate brown with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma has a malty core with notes of caramel and cloves and a snippet of cinnamon added to it. Roast malt flavor trots cinnamon, caramel, clove and even slight molasses notes across the palate. Lively, fizzy texture is fairly firm, and leaves a tingly feeling on the palate and on the pipes as it heads downstairs. Beans, beans, the musical fruit...

ScipioA (262) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2013
12 oz draft pour for about $5. Brown with almost no head. Aromas of malt and beer. Fairly interesting flavor, it has a fruity bittersweetness I associate with really dark chocolates. Maybe a bit overboard on the dark malt however, tastes almost burnt. This is a totally inoffensive and OK brown ale, nothing to seek out but nothing to avoid. If you’re at Beer Works and want a brown ale go for it.

Draught. This is a simple little brown ale that lacks character and feels very thin.
