A - Dark brown almost black with one finger of a foamy white head, medium lacing.
S - Nicely roasted malt, coffee beants, toasted caramel, chocolate, a little light floral hop notes, a hint of nuttiness.
T - Extremely balanced, mild light floral bitterness accompanies a nice blend of roasted malt of chocolate and some caramel, light coffee hints, a touch of vanilla.
M - Balance of creamy and bitter, nice feel to this one.
O - Excellent brown ale, nice subtle complexity, good feel to it.

Pours a dark brown head with an inch or so of light brown head. A tad bit dark for Decent retention and a good amount of lacing. A little bit of mild sweetness in the aroma paired with dark chocolate and a little nuttiness. Good balance in the taste. Nothing over the top. A little bit of sweetness, followed by caramel. Lightly roasted coffee and slight hints of chocolate.A little bit thinner than I expected, with a touch of creaminess. Goes down really easy. I could knock back a few of these.
Overall, I consider this one to be a curious case. This is the second can of this that I've had. The first one was a bit fresher. I'm not liking it as much this time around. The aroma and taste seem a bit milder this time around.
