3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn, served in a shaker,
this drink had a dark brown pour and had a nice light tan colored head when served at the bar, and there was nice lacing on the glass as I drank,
this beer had aromas of chocolate, caramel, toasted and roasted malt, and some milk duds (which I found to be a good thing),
the flavors were toasted and roasted malt, chocolate and caramel,
the mouth feel was a little less than medium and had some creamy feel on the tongue,
a nice brown ale, with a good chocolate nose and flavor, I would drink again.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer a cloudy dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, malt and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and notes of chocolate malt and hops. The finish is sweet and malty with a touch of spiced hops left behind. Decent overall.
