A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

355ml bottle. Rich chocolate aromas are the first thing that you notice as you pour the beer and then your eyes are to drawn to the heavy brown, black colour and the evn layer of sticky tan foam. Faintly smokey and bitter dark chocolate flavours at first.

Pours a translucent but deep reddish brown. Tight and lasting off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is of cola, toasted malt, cookies. Light bodied. Flavors are toasted malt, dough, and some distant dark fruits. Slightly bitter finish, with more toasty flavors. Packs a lot of flavor for the light body.

This pours a dark brown color with a light beige head. The scent is rather mild with hazelnuts. The taste is bold and nutty with a great blend of robust malts, caramel malts, and nuts. The texture is smooth and is an overall pretty good beer.

Bottle @ home. Colore marrone scuro, solo alcuni riflessi rubino. Schiuma color beige scuro. Profumo tostato, pieno di frutta secca,e luppolato erbaceo. Il corpo medio , la carbonatazione gentile e il piacevole grado alcolico la rendono di una facilità di beva impressionante. Il gusto è asciutto, di mallo di noce, un po’ tostato e con un caldo alcolico lieve. Non è il mio stile ma mi ha favorevolmente impressionato.

ContemplateBeer (2007) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Aroma: Cocoa powder rules the malt scene, and is met with a very light dash of spicy/floral hops. Cocoa tends toward chocolate fudge as it warms. Appearance: Nearly opaque dark brown with a foamy tan head that settles into a creamy tan ring. Flavor: Mostly cocoa up front, but with undercurrents of lightly spicy hops; really surprised by the depth of the malts for a 5.5 beer- cocoa into dark bread. There’s a little citrus/floral kick towards the finish, concluding with a slightly bitter dryness. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: In my opinion, a severely underappreciated example of the style.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Dark chestnut brown with airy but firm head. Thin consistency, but pretty solid nutty and bittered flavors here. This is a good brown ale.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Nice big chewy brown ale. Some chocolate and roasted malt really come through with the hop spice balanced. Doesn’t really fit into any style, it’s special on it’s own. 37 out of 100? Does anyone here like beer?
