Aroma of mildly roasted malt, caramel, nuts, chocolate, some coffee, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a nice moderately bitter finish. Tasty American Brown Ale, and it hides its ABV well.

Can. Clear dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is smooth with mild fine carbonation. Good brown malts, some cream and a little dry coffee. Whisper of paint, almost like it was barrel age induced. Dry and slight spicy finish. Tasty enough.
