16 oz. can shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a chocolate brown with a small beige ring for a head. Notes of nuts, toast, brown sugar, and dry chocolate malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Decent brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour w/ a large dense tan head with some slick lacing. Rich roasty aroma reminiscent of a porter slightly sweet malts hints of molasses and some light dark chocolates and a touch of lactose. Pretty avg body w/ some decent carbonation. Flavor is heavily roasted malts some light milk chocolate and a light hop finish. Leaves a bit of lingering sweetness and sticks a bit to your tongue. I would have called this a porter, but enjoyed it none the less.

16 oz can to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a semi-opaque brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of malt and hazelnut with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Canned. Poured deep brown with a short-lived, smoked beige head. The aroma picked up fairly metallic husky notes with accents of nutty notes and chocolate.. kind of funky. The flavor found chocolate, nutty notes, and caramel at the core, with metallic character laced throughout.. a touch medicinal on the finish. Lighter-bodied and very dry on the palate.. too sharp.. this seemed off.

Easily the best brown ale I've had, and an incredibly good beer in its own right -- and this is not a style to which I'm usually partial. Pours just barely on the brown side of black, with no head. Huge malt flavor, with just a shade of bitterness to keep things lively, and an amazing nutty taste -- with perhaps a hint of chocolate and coffee -- permeating throughout. The nuttiness has staying power, and keeps you coming back for more. Very, very good!!

Not a bad brew, here. 16oz can into shaker. This one has a heavy roasted grain and coffee aroma. Light cocoa notes mixed in there, too. Nice body - dark brown with a khaki head. Flavors match up nicely with more roast, coffee grounds, bitter cocoa, burnt toast. Pretty good.
