3.75/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Poured form a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Deep, rich, mahogany-brown with an off-white, 2-finger head and a touch of lacing.
S: Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some nuts, and a touch of marzipan.
T: Toasted malts and molasses up-front, with a smoky, smooth, crisp finish. Flavors of chocolate malts, toasted nuts, used coffee grounds, mature cherries, and raisins. There is a dryness to the swallow that fits well, as it reminds one of dead leaves. It adds a nice balance to the maltiness of traditional brown ales.
M: Simple, middle-of-the-road feel that neither adds, nor detracts from the quality of the beer. A touch heavier than your typical brown, but this is a good thing.
O: For a seasonal brown ale, this is quite tasty. I'm not a huge fan of many autumn offerings, and this is certainly above-par. That being said, when judged independent of its season, this beer is nothing too special.
