Roast stale coffee. And I mean really stale. Indistinct roastiness in the aroma too. Lively carbonation. Fits the brown ale style pretty well with plenty of roasty malty body. Some smokiness too. Very tasty.

Firkin tapping at Party Source. Poured a hazy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nut and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Solid toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Slightly hoppy, but not drank terribly fresh so theres more dark roast and caramel nose and flavor than any hops (slightly pine-ey). Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Pleasant.

Tap at Paradiso dupont. Pours a clear cola red. Medium tan Foam. Spots of lacing. Nose is hazelnut, praline, cookie. Taste is really nice peanut butter chocolate cookie, woah, hazelnut, almond, praline, Toblerone. Surprisingly good. Worth finding. Palate finishes with a harsh metal twang typical of Paradisos tap system. Ill ignore that.
