On draft @ their brew-pub. Poured a dark brown, prett much opaque & sparse head. Their list says hints of chocolate & malt, and that’s exactly what I got from it. Smooth & drinkable.

On tap at NH. Dark pour, with lace on the glass. Sweet, malty aroma. Well balanced, with flavors of coffee and grains. A little tang and bite, but malty overall. This excellent BA could be a session brew.

On tap at the brewpub in Philly on 7/23. I liked this a lot, very good example of the style. Some chocolate and coffee sweetness, some background nuttiness. Easily the best beer I was able to taste at the brewpub. Brown ales don’t get enough love.

On tap at the brewpub. Beautiful Guinness-looking black pour with foamy, creamy beige head. Aroma of coffee grounds, caramel, and nuts. Flavor has a big chocolate malt character with lots of caramel in the background. Nutty with moderate caramel stickiness. Sort of a robust session beer. Quite enjoyable.
