Pour is a dark brown with almost no head at all. Aroma is roasted nuts with some chocolate and toffee. Flavor is creamy chocolate and roasted malt with minor coffee and caramel. Maybe a bit watery but this a minor complaint. Solid for a brown ale and the malt used really shines and shows what a brown ale can be.

Smells of light peanut butter. Dark mahogany pour with 1 inch bream colored head. No lacing at all. Maybe a little chocolate malt noted. Very average brown!

From the can. Damn, there are a lot of different versions of this base beer. And I am just now trying it. A definite milk chocolate aroma on this one. The taste has both a nice carbonated zing to it and some creaminess as well. More milk chocolate taste here. Followed by a touch of caramel. Really nice.

Medium body, great mouth-filling creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a drying roasty finish.
