look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A-chestnut brown with visible sediment and a fingers worth of cream colored head

S-dark bready malts, cocoa, and earthy hops

T-taste is very nice, dark malt backbone with a light roastedness but then finishes with a pretty big hop presence

M-medium body, creamy, good carbonation

Overall this is a really well made brown ale. Smuttynose is completely underrated in my opinion. Try this beer if you find it.

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Smutty pint. Freshhh.

Appearance- It looks like dirty water. Very murky brown with one finger of off-white head that left nice lacing.

Smell- Chocolate, coffee, big piney hops, solid malt backbone. Smells of a very roasty and hoppy brown.

Taste- Much like the smell. Coffee and chocolate with big piney and citrusy hops balancing the malts out. No hint of the 8.5% ABV.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. Medium body with medium carbonation. No booze heat.

Overall- I loved this as a short batch and I love it as a six pack. Thanks Smuttynose for making this seasonal.
