We pop the tab on a can, pouring into our Great Lakes pints. It shows the deepest nut brown coloring, holding a one finger head of café au lait colored bubbles. These retain only decently, settling into a creamy film atop the liquid. A thick haze obstructs clarity, but no sediment is noted. Carbonation appears to be mild. Aromatics include soy sauce, bready pumpernickel biscuitiness, brown and caramel malt roastiness, shoe polish, dark chocolate cocoa powders and nib bitters, burnt toffee, salted movie theater popcorn, cloying vanilla icing sugars, light honeycomb earthiness, tin, rumbling phenolic plastics, and crystallized marshmallow sweetness. The tongue meets a different mash, showing notes of table honey and white sugar, moldy margarine, tinny metallics, burnt brown and American black maltiness, raw barley, steeped caramel sugars, woody maple syrups, pale biscuity and buttery diacetyls, bitter cocoa and coffee bean shell, chemically hair gel, burnt coconut and marshmallow skins, parsley leafiness, and soft, cleansing ethanolic booziness. The body is lightly medium, and the carbonation is medium. The mouth is left cooled and coated with sugary, lippy smack. Cream and froth are preserved, while slurp and smack are as well, but to a lesser extent. The abv is appropriate, and the beer glugs back nicely.

Overall, we are thankful to have this recommended to us by Benjamin at The Brick Oven Bistro in Sandusky, Ohio. We had the pleasure of speaking to him a week or so back, and he was able to offer us some of the premier beverages available in central to western Ohio. This was among the top on his list, and we are very happy to have tried it. The nose is incredibly sweet and rich, akin to the liking of Southern Tier’s Crème Brule, but to a slightly more subdued extent. The flavoring, on the other hand, showed a much more bittered, and even smoky approach, allowing for a serious side to this brown ale that was otherwise not yet appreciated. This is an exciting beer for a small brewery, and it leaves us wishing they had wider distribution to keep us warm through the winter months.
