aroma: sweet stale coffee.
T1= sweet dark malt, a bit astringent, some chicken coop funkiness.
T2= very astringent coffee, harsh hops.
T3= dry and puckery astringency.
i hate to sound mean, because i love what these guys are trying to do, but this just comes across as some kind of really crappy brown ale.

Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable average for style beer.
Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear deep amber with thin tan head. The aroma is roasty, mildly chocolate, sugary malts, burnt malts, a sense of biscuit malts and followed by hints of dark fruity esters. The taste is much the same with roasty to chocolate to burnt malts that really seem cohesive. By midway a mild pulse of dark fruitiness surfaces and then vanishes away as roasted malts, burnt malts and malt astringency take this to the finish. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Draft... Clear, deep, dark mahogany ale with a small, creamy, white head. Regarding the nose, espresso, toasted nuts and chocolate cake come to the forefront. Full-bodied and creamy with ticklish carbonation. Bittersweet, mocha and metallic/tin essence. Lengthy, bittersweet, roasty finish. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 5, 2009
