BeerSamizdat (6) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Phenomenally surprising brown ale (!) full of body, depth and taste. Malt and caramel and a really husky, robust backbone make for something a lot more special than most brown ales I’ve come across. Beautiful label, too.

Deep brown color. Molasses aroma. Flavors are rich and the hop bitterness does not come too far forward.
