Mild coffee, caramel, toffee, malt, then a sweet brown sugar that throws off the balance.

Appearance- Dark amber in color with a one finger (slightly tan colored) head produced.

Aroma- Sweet caramel malts, nutty, and an almost roasted quality you'd expect from an imperial stout.

Taste- Once again sweet nutty caramel malts are big in the flavor at first. Towards the end a earthy/spice hop provides a quick bite of bitterness as well as some bitterness from the roasted malt.

Feel- Medium to full bodied, medium to high carbonation, and semi dry in the finish.

Overall- At only 5% alcohol there is a ton of flavor packed into this beer. Really nice complexities in the malt ranging from sweet caramel, nuttiness, and a little bit of bitterness from a roasted malt. The earthy hops add a nice balance, but almost add a bit too much spice in the finish. Also, relatively speaking this was surprisingly bitter, especially at first, but that fades a little with warmth. Overall, this is a great brown ale, and one that will a go to for the style when I want a brown ale.
