Had on tap at the Rogue Pub in San Francisco, CA
Appearance - Served to me in a 16oz pint glass with little head, this beer is deep, dark and auburn brown in color with a thin layer of suds across the surface. Very little lacing.
Smell - Hits on roasted malt with lesser notes of coffee and a touch of that sweet brown nuttiness which is fairly prevalent in the style.
Taste - A fair amount of coffee character upfront, but quickly gives way to more traditional brown character; moderate roasted malt, a touch of brown sugar sweetness and some nuttiness. Faint earthiness. Finishes with nice balance.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Goes down well enough.
Overall - A fairly good brown. It's certainly not on the level of their Hazelnut Brown. The roasted qualities are nice, but ultimately this doesn't hit on anything too special. Price dependent I'd be willing to give it another go, but I doubt this one will ever see a bottling line.
Serving type: on-tap
