A nice brown smell, and good color. Taste is sharp but mild, right on point. Palate a little weak. A good but not amazing brown ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark brown with a quick diminishing head. Scents of sweet cocoa with some coffee hints. Very robust malts that again have the taste of cocoa and coffee. Very flavorful as it basically a step below the bold taste of a stout. If you’re into dark and heavy beers, this is a must try!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy dark brown.
Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (caramel, toasted bread/nuts), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of brown sugar, date, hazelnut extract, vanilla.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Strikingly rich nose, full of malt goodness...a bit sugar-centric but there’s a fair amount of depth that keeps me coming back over and over. Alas, the suggestion that it will be quite sweet holds true...there’s enough bitterness at the end to keep it from being undrinkable, but it was admittedly hard to drink very much. Kinda thick and syrupy as well. Just as with last night’s BRU Obitus, the only major thing standing between this and 4+ territory is a better drinking experience...i.e., better balance/attenuation.
