The head was little to none so I got almost no aroma. Color is hazy and dark brown. Light caramel flavor, almost an abrupt finish.

Very great brown. Aroma was lacking, but was rich and frothy, but to overpowering. Rich taste, with a bit of spice, and a little earthy. Taste lingered, but pleasantly. I normally like India browns more, but this is great. Had at Lyons brew pub 7/12.

On tap at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids. Clear mahogany with an aroma of chocolate cereal grains and a whiff of tobacco and peat. Taste is pretty malty but not too big. Loads of darker sweet grains, cereal, a touch of chocolate, peat, and leather. Weird, but not unpleasant.
