It seemed like more of a brown ale, a very good brown ale. Fresh and well hopped for the style. Well roasted but not burnt, and a very good palate. Sampled on draft, at the brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draught at the brewery tap room in St Louis Park, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a beige film on glass edge and a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some chocolate malt, a hint of anise, light coffee and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, with complex flavors of chocolate and black malt, some black licorice, oatmeal, and floral hops. Finish is quite smooth with some chocolate/oatmeal malt aftertaste along with some mild bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by pineypower. Poured a solid pitch black body with an average to slightly smaller dark beige foamy head with a vigorous pour. Aroma is very roasty with light chocolate, well done toast and slight charcoal. Full body, dry, softer carbonation and a lingering roastiness. Flavor of charcoal, burnt malts and dark burnt chocolate. Solid beer.

Autumn Brew Review 2011. Black color with a medium head. Moderate coffee aroma. Big milky and coffee laden flavor, even though this isnít a breakfast stout. Light roasted barley character. Medium to light body. Alcohol didnít show up at all, even at 7%.
