Clear chestnut brown with a thin off-white head. Nutty and chocolaty aroma with a quiet earthy funkiness. Flavor hits with a dark and sweet roastiness but is immediately set upon by a strong tobacco note. Finishes like cigarette smoke with a hint of malty earthy cocoa.

A little bland on the heels of their rich toffee porter but in retrospect a solid brown.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brown pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of brown sugar, caramel, slight nuts and earth, hint of grass in there as well, slight biscuit and yeast notes. Taste was a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, hints of spice and yeast, touch of nuts, hint of earth, finishing fairly sweet but dries out well.
