3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Parkway, SE and other places. Clear, deep red-brown pour with a creamy, tan head leaving heavy, coarse lace. Coffee nose is a bit of a turn-off for me, but most will like it. Medium-light body and carbonation. Bitter chocolate, toffee, burnt caramel, coffee and a touch of honey liven this one up without making it overly sweet and thereby not sessionable. Hops are peppery and pine and very much in the background as they should be for a brown ale. Quite tasty, have more than one!

Smells pretty good. Some light roast maltiness. This is also pretty good. The nuttiness/maltiness/hops are constantly fighting. The nuttiness wins out but it’s still good.

Roasty, nutty nose, somewhat sweet, chocolatey and fruity as well with some piney/garlicy hops. Pours dark brown with a thinnish beige head. The flavor is roasty up front, chocolate and fruity sweetness on the mid palate followed by piney bitterness. Nice lingering roasty/hop note. Interesting take on style, hoppy american brown. Enjoyable.
