caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast, roasty. Coke brown, hazy, minimal head. medium sweetness, medium bitterness. ale-like body, medium feel, average carbonation, long finish. A big brown ale. Originally thought it was a porter but clarity (compared to stout) made it an ale. Would recommend.

Sample at Bruery Provisions. The beer pours a dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing. The aroma is malty with some roasted nut and hop notes. Medium-bodied with a roasty character of malt and nuts plus some mild hops. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A surprisingly restrained offering from the Bruery. This is about as straight up as you will get from them. A bit of excess of roasty/burnt notes throughout but it has a nice spice kick added that really adds to the mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep black color with aroma of roasted almonds mixed with burnt hops. The taste is clean and rfreshing with a typical mild brown ale taste. A very tasty beer that lacks a little complexity but overall is easy drinking and a decent mouthful.
