Beer poured from can into a Nonic shaped pint glass
A - Beer pours with a nice dark brown colored body; moderate level of visible carbonation; head is nice and thick, about 1.5 fingers in size and holds very well; good amount of sticky lacing forms around the edge of the glass; body has a nice slick motor oil look to it
S - Deep roasted malt nose; slightly nutty; touch of oatmeal, brown sugar, some nice vanilla and finishes off with coffee beans; gives this beer a hearty smell
T - Sip starts off with a traditional nutty roasted malt taste; immediately followed up with a creamy oatmeal taste; hint of vanilla graze your tongue and finishes off with a touch of cocoa; caramel malt and brown sugar
M - Very creamy; chewy; not too heavy on the hop side, and leaves behind a lingering chalky feel on the roof of your mouth and back of the tongue
D - Outstanding brown ale taste; probably one of the better ones I've had do to its easy taste and feel; flavors and scents are good, but not overwhelming and you can really taste all the ingredients that were put into this beer; fantastic

On tap into a pint glass at Stout's Pub in Falcon Heights, MN.
A:Clear, deep ruby brown in color. Soft, short (due to pour) light tan head. Nice lace (thank you clean glass).
S: This is nice up front. Good round hoppiness with roasted malts. As it mellows and sits it develop caramel and toasty notes with a hint of spiced baked goods.
T: Well rounded biscuity notes with a nice floral balancing hop profile. Rich and toasty while the hops are citrusy enough to balance.
M: Just about perfect. Light oily chewiness is prevalent while a drying note finishes. Nice.
D: Very. If you've never had it....please do.
