Pour is an almost black with almost no head at all. Aroma is a nice roasted malt with enough chocolate coming off it to make it interesting. Flavor is bitter chocolate with a decent roast and some metal toward the end. Mouth feel is thick and oliy with a nice dry roasted malt left on the tongue. This is way more in the porter/ stout category than a brown ale. Solid beer with a real heavy malt presence.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, nearly black pour with a 1 finger, frothy tan head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, strong nutty notes, roast, a hint of coffee, burnt sugar, a touch of woodiness and earthy hops. Flavor starts off with roast and lots of nutty malt, rolling into some nice, chocolate and mild coffee notes, husky grain and dry old wood. Toward the finish some light metallic and tart notes come in, very reminiscent of a stout with the beginnings of an infection that yields some lactic acid. Those notes are barely noticeable to me, so maybe its in my head. Medium body, syrupy entry, leading to a slightly astringent finish, with a moderate to heavy, and fairly sharp carbonation. Starts off really tasty, but as I drink the odd acidity and metallic notes seem to build up on the palate and make it a little less enjoyable.

Way to bitter, maybe it's the can? All I taste is the bitterness and the mouth feel is nothing but astringent. Probably won't try this again.
