look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served at cellar temp.

Black Tea shade of reddish brown with thin greyish head that recedes quickly.

aroma; rich coffee notes suggest presence of some roasted malt, some sweetish yeastiness and some balancing hops.

mouthfeel: is a little thin.

taste: not quite as malty as some Browns, a light burnt coffee bitterness gives way to a slight cola sweetness.

Notes:if this were a richer, maltier brew it would be outstanding in flavor. lack of lacing is a problem. despite some flaws this is still a good beer..

Poured two fingers of head on a brown colored body.
The aroma is wonderful. It's a maltiness mixed with earth and forest.
The taste is somewhat watery with a roasted malt note and the mildest bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The taste didn't measure up to the great look and smell of the beer.
