4.33/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

on tap at lounge 5280 in DIA. The beer is identified on the receipt as "seasonal" and on the tap handle as "Brown No. 3", so I'm not positive this is the right beer.

A: Clear brown. Served with little head but there is some lacing.

S: Roast, chocolate, some nuttiness. The aroma is fairly mild but what there is is good.

T: Slightly sweet, roast, chocolate and vanilla, some nuts with bitterness on the finish. There's no discernible hop character. The finish really makes this beer--without it, it would probably be too sweet, but as it is, I could drink this all night.

M: Full and silky with minimal carbonation. Really nice.

O: I hope to have the opportunity to try this beer again, because I'm afraid I'm over-impressed because I'm at an airport bar towards the end (I hope) of a very hellish trip. If my senses are reliable, this is a fantastic beer.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Deep hazed brown hue, thin yet staying off white lacing. Nutty maltiness, hint of brown sugar, yeast, and dried grass in the nose. Great smoothness meets a semi-chewy body. Love the maltiness in this brew, toasty with grassy highlights. Modest hopping with just enough bitterness to bring things together.

A solid brown ale from start to finish, very drinkable as well.

Clead reddy-brown in color, with some light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is of caramel and hazelnut nuttiness. Taste is caramel and the same nuttiness. Extremely high carbonation for a brown. Slightly watery too. I hate this 250 character minimum!!!!
