From notes. Had a pint of this on draft at Calypsoís in Virginia Beach on May 24. Not a bad little spot for a bar next to the hotel. The pour is almost more ruby than brown, but there is a creamy light tan head that fades off slowly leaving a good bit of lace. The aroma is pretty plain, as most browns are. There is a light chocolate, some caramel, a hint of toffee, and thatís about it. Maybe just some sweet malt. The flavor is much of the same. This is almost entirely comprised of chocolate, a hint of toffee, and a sweet, lingering malt on the back end. The mouth feel is surprisingly decent. Itís got a nice medium body to it with a soft carbonation and a lingering sweet, yet light, chocolate and toffee. Iíve had much worse, thatís for sure. bytemesis (8242) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 14, 2017
