Sampled this at the Breckenridge Brewery tap room/brew pub place near the stadium in Denver. Pours dark brown with a light khaki head. Aroma of very light smoke and lots of chocolate. Flavor follows with very little if any smoke, some nice chocolate notes, and a spicy character that is tough to describe. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. I’d have this again given the chance, but not worth seeking out.

In the can @ home. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a foamy light brown head. Toasted nuts, cashews, caramel, minerals, and light chocolate in the aroma. Light to medium body. Decent flavor. Pretty nutty with some chocolate. Moderate earthy bitterness. A little chalky. Ok.

Can poured into a fluted glass. Pours brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is a bit dishwater and vegetal. Bit of grassiness. Disappointing lack of any roast. Taste is creamy, vegetal, grass, a bit of nuts, vanilla, chocolate, coffee with cream. Easy drinking, nice creamy finish. Nothing special. The off putting aroma is tough to get over.

Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is chocolate nutty smoked malt. Flavor is slightly less nutty with more yeasty esters. Solid brown with some good dark and smoky flavors.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount. Dark brown and pretty clear with a tan head and light lacing. Roasted malts, bread, chocolate, light bitter hops and earthy aroma. Similar flavor, crisp and malty. Medium body with a lingering finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with a touch of clear ruby around the edge of the glass, under a thin rocky light khaki head. The aroma is wonderful, with a lovely milk chocolate tone, a touch of biscuit, some pecan, and a touch of light morning-blend coffee. Taste is smooth and earthy with some crackery bakers cocoa, and some ground morning coffee, and earthy nuttiness. Sweet, earthy, and smooth. Re-instills my hope in the Brown Ale style.

Drank direct from can.
Beer had nice aroma of roasted coffee and hints of coco underlying the coffee. The beer itself was a heavy body, but it did not coat the tongue. Lingered a little longer than what I preferred, but it does not diminish the overall flavor.
