A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

12-oz bottle Pours a rich mahogany brown with a medium tan head with good lacing an retention. Aroma is OK with dark fruits predominating. There is a pungent roastiness as well. Taste is where this beer excels. Not as sweet as some browns, with a subtle sourness in the midtaste that morphs into a hoppy, smoky bitterness. The smoke flavor hangs in there in the finish. If you like smoky brews, and I do, this is a very fine brown. But it seems to me more in the style of a very smooth dry stout. Mouthfeel is medium and a little sticky. Very drinkable. The bitter smoky finish adds an intriguing quality to this brown. I was surprised to find this brew in a attractively priced six-pack. I will be keep in these in the fridge for as long as they are available.

Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours brown thin beige head. Nose is raisin and chocolate cake. Taste is chocolate, slight coffee, some slight brett style funk? It has a kind of creme brullee thing going on.
