Draft at the brewery. Cola colored with just a touch of tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is mostly oat and a hint of hop bitterness to start. Chocolate notes begin to appear as beer warms. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Solid but unspectacular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013
Location: Draft at Texas Arizona, 1/3/13
Aroma: The nose has some chocolate and caramel malts, nutty notes, and oats to it
Appearance: An opaque dark brown pour, with a creamy light-brown head, and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: A mid-heavy malt flavor, lightly sweet, and similar to the nose, with an earthy, light bitter finish
Palate: The body leans full, with a creamy feel, it is fairly smooth, and finishes dry and roasty
I thought this was a really solid Brown with a nice mouthfeel and some good heft. Well-made and pretty easy to drink. Nicely done.

Pours dark brown with a thin head. A nose of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate and nuts. A nice blended taste of coffee, chocolate, nuts and a caramel sweetness that lingers on the pallet nicely. A very good brown ale.
