3.73/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle, produced 12/10, poured into DFH Snifter

A - Dark amber pour with about an inch or so off-white head. Retention settles to the edges and a thin skim; loose lace.

S - Has the malty, yeasty and nutty notes typical of a brown, with a heavy dose of hoping taking on earthy and peppery notes.

T&M - Taste follows much of the nose; yeasty nuttiness combined with a substantial hoping that has an oily feel with a peppery bite. Malt is also substantial with caramel and roasted notes. Thicker body with a bit of a heavy feel; light carbonation.

O - Hard to place style wise, but I like the label on the beer as an India Brown better then the American Black Ale descriptor given. The base seems to be a pretty decent brown with a heavy dose of hops...so India Brown it is. I'm a fan of browns in general, and I would happily have this one again.
