3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was a nutty coffee. It pour a rich dark, black color like your morning coffee but with a solid head. I did not find this beer sweet at all. It was a rich hazelnut coffee, that finished fairly clean. I did not find it that complex, it was an ok beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - gift from family after their recent trip to Williamsburg. Pours a dark, muddy brown. Minimal tan head during the pour that quickly fades to nothing once it settles in the glass. Absolutely no lacing along the glass. Aroma has some roasty, nutty notes to it with just a touch of spice. Flavor is moderately sweet up front with some hop bitterness in the finish. Lingering roasted malt notes on the tail end. Nice, enjoyable brown ale.
