Growler from the brewery (Brown Ale (aka the Dark & Dirty) described as "It’s not really dirty, more of a moderately hopped, medium bodied, roasty, and hints of coffee kind of ale!".) Pours a murky dark brown with hints of orange and a small tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolate and coffee with fairly prominent green piney hops. Flavour is very green piney hops with lightly roasty chocolate and coffee. Moderate bitterness in finish. Fairly gentle carbonation. Interesting hopped up take on a brown ale.
