Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is surprisingly full of hops that go well with the malt.

Cola-ish brown, not much head. Smell like molasses and brown sugar. Taste is kind of sweet at first, then more molasses and brown sugar and caramel. There is a bit of a woody hop bite in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: silky dark brown pour with caramel edges and a creamy light tan head that persists forever, leaving firm lacing; even poured into a crappy hotel styrofoam cup, this was a pretty beer. Aroma: smells pretty, with nice dark chocolate, some brown sugar, rolled oats, lightly burnt toast, and a bit of a cigar note. Taste: slightly sweet and roasty, with some chocolate and brown bread, a little burnt brown sugar, lightly toasted nuts, and a little vanilla. Finish: there’s a dry, slightly piney hop note on the back end to complement the roasty feel; finishes smooth and clean. Notes: Really nice brown ale. Perfect palate: smooth and creamy but not heavy. Nice carbonation. Good find. Bottle to go from a random pizza joint in downtown Brunswick, Georgia.
