Draft. More coffee than I expected. Very toasty and roasty. Like I'm drinking a cloud coffee stout. Meh.

Had on tap at Astoria Bier and Cheese.
Not enough malty sweetness for my taste. Palette almost too crisp for the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at brewery. Dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Rich malt and chocolate aroma. Very roasted character and nutty in flavor. Malts dominate in finish. A truly great session ale. My favorite so far of their offerings.

Cute 16oz growler courtesy of j12601. Cheers, Jay! Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is a beautiful bouquet of chocolate, nuts, coffee, and some mild spice with hints of earth. Nose is wonderful with hints of yeast. Flavor starts with mild nuts then goes into some mild chocolate, dry coffee, and mild spice. Yeast comes in and tries to dry it out. Outstanding nose, but the flavor is a bit less than the aroma promises. For a brown, though, this is very nice.
