Pours dark brown. Taste bitter cocoa up front followed by chocolate malt and some sweetness in the finish. Kind of a dry cocoa flavor and almost porter like. Surprisingly good and a rich toasty chalky malt flavor and moderate bitterness.

Best by Nov 12, 2014.
A very dark brown brew with some reddish highlights, the off white foam starts off big but shrinks quickly leaving some lacing behind.
The smell is all Brown Ale like. ;^) Big hoppy but with more than hints of roasted malt and coffee. I think the hop and roasted malt have a nice "marriage" going on and they are celebrating the event with the coffee.
The taste just supports what I said about the smell. Nice bitter from the hops and roasted malt with a wee bit of sweetness that doesn’t quite balance things out, but this is an American Brown Ale, so all is right with the world. Did I forget to mention coffee’s involvement? I think it brings things together and gives this Brown Ale and extra oomph. Wow. Oomph is a word without the red squiggly lines but hoppy isn’t?
Medium is what I’d use to describe the body and carbonation.
This is an excellent Brown Ale and I will enjoy drinking the other cans I have.

Pours a chestnut brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is very nutty with a good roasted malt flavor that lingers enough on the palate. Beer is easy drinking and flavorful, and came in a can.

I was hesitant at buying a beer in a can, but was greatly surprised by the quality. A nice brown color with a nutty aroma. Just the right amount of bitter taste. A good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich dark brown pour with ruby edges around the light. Light khaki head. Coffee and roasted malt most prominent in the aroma, but there is a hint of hop citrus at the end of the aroma. Flavor is also heavier on coffee and roast. Some dark chocolate. Hops are barely noticeable. Medium sweet finish.
