Enjoyed at the taproom with beerdrenched. Pours a nice rich brown with light brown head that leaves some good lace. Aromas of toffee, chocolate, and medium roast coffee. Background earthy notes from the hops. The flavor has a lot of roast and some dark chocolate. Okay bitterness to finish. Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Not bad at all for a brown.

tap-hop in the city 05-man, im impressed with this one! pours clear brown amber with a big sudsy beige head. nutty, peanut quality on the aroma with a significant dose of some leafy, earthy hops as well. nutty flavors dominate with a hint of chocolate. long cashew/peanuty finish that was very nice. medium body for the style. one of the better of this style!

Sampled on tap at the Tap Room, STL. An incredible brown that must be experienced. Dark brown with a generous tan head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by coffee and bitter, dark chocolate. Caramel and some spicy, piney hops are also in the mix, but are in the background. Full-bodied, light to moderately carbonated with a dry, clean finish. Very close to porter in style. I LOVE this beer.
