3.6/5 rDev -13.5%
Dark brown in the wine glass with a decent head. Plenty of suds in the mouth. This has a thicker substance with a slick mouthfeel. Nice chocolatey aroma with something herbal.
There is a lot of coffee flavor, though it took me some sipping to realize that's what it was. The bitter chocolate taste is the more powerful. Not much taste of alcohol, but there is a winey hint. An abundance of roast malt and plenty of sweetness. Overall this is a richly flavored smooth brew that is totally drinkable.
Aftertaste is bitter coffee with a hoppy edge. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Ibis Market in Mission Hills.

4.05/5 rDev -2.6%
Bottled on ? date is not readable
A: pours a deep brown with two fingers of fluffy light tan head that fades slowly and leaved decent lacing
S: smells of coffee chocolate and roasted malts
T: taste is coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, a slight bitterness from the roast. swallow is coffee forward with a little bit of chocolate and some more roasted malt and a slight hop bitterness to finish the drink
M: this beer sits on the lighter side of medium with fairly active carbonation that flirts with being prickly. the finish on this beer is a little drying
O: This is a nice full flavored brown ale with good flavors and decent complexity. It hits all the right notes and has solid balance.

4.19/5 rDev +0.7%
On tap at Cannery Row Brewing in Monterey. I had no idea this was 8.5%, but it was immediately clear this was a delicious brown ale. The body is relatively light for the weight, I figured this wasn't more than 6 or 6.5%. Isn't of a brown ale's usual slow rolling notes, this beer had pointed notes of cocoa and coffee, dark toasted bread, a couple touches of dark berries, and then more coffee. Easiest one of the biggest brown ales I've ever had. I want more.
