3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stable brown-tan head over deep brown beer, nearly black. Chocolate, coffee, coffeedrab and dried herbs. Sweet coffee, with chocolate - cappucino without cream? Hint of charcoal impression, but sugared, as the coffee. Very slick to viscous; medium bodied at best, feels well-carbonated. Brown ale usually isn’t very complex. This is a couple of steps upped.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep, rich brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is cocoa and roasted malt. Flavor is big chocolate, dark and rich but without the sweetness of a chocolate stout. Light bitterness and sharp hops keep it from getting heavy. Really well balanced and tasty.
