Tried at bottle share at today's Swamp Head release. Pours murky brownish orange with no head. Aroma of caramel, burnt toffee, bitter pine hops. Flavor follows similarly with notes of caramel and toffee, burnt sugar, earthy hops, with bitterness on the finish. More hoppy American barleywine than brown ale really. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation. Overall a decent brew but maybe a bit harsh.

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Date was on the very base of the bottle, but top half of it illegible.

Black, with some reddish hints, big 2 inch foamy tan head. decent carbonation. Lacing was pretty think. big drawback here was a TON of floaties, some quite large. A bit off putting, but I soldiered on.

Not much on the nose, just a faint malt aroma. Here goes....

Hey, this stuff tastes pretty good! Getting the hops and the malt, very nicely balanced indeed. Seemed to switch form one to the other, hop bite upfront, roasted malt finish. Kinda Black Ale-ish.

Mouth was between medium and full

Overall, enjoyed this one. The floaties eventually settled to the bottom and I supped the last quarter quite carefully. Would seek it out again, hopefully floatie-free.
