Bomber. Dark chocolate aroma. Dark brown color with a three finger beige head. Medium body with fine carbonation; almost chewy. Flavor is lots of chocolate, dark roasted malt, and bitter (probably burnt malt and hop). Finish is dry, and the bitter is persisting. Seems to be really good for a brown ale. Damn near crisp.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Typical brown body, clear, filtered, all that, with a toast colored tan head on top. Very fresh, very full, well attenuated, rich and delicious almonds, vanilla and bread crust, with some chocolate malt and cocoa notes. Some dusty mineral notes in the finish, a bit of mold perhaps, but overall very few complaints. Good brown ales are difficult to find... but I always have been a sucker for the Full Sail house character.
