look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color capped by a frothy mocha head a few strands of lace dot the side of the glass

Smell: Fudge, toasted brown bread and a touch of coffee

Taste: Toasted brown bread smeared with chocolate, up front, with the coffee adding another element, after the swallow; brown sugar sweetness lingers in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I doubt that anybody would pick this as a brown ale in a blind tasting but whatever style you want to call it, it is an enjoyable beer
