look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A - Quite dark for a brown ale, almost black. The head is a very light tan, and sticks to the glass nicely, but doesn't leave lasting lacing.
S - Sweet, slightly chocolatey malts. Just the tiniest touch of roastiness. No sign of hops. Tasty.
T - Some of the same malts as in the nose, but there's not much depth of flavor. When chilled, it's a bit boring, with some out-of-place bitterness and a metallic bite... but it improves dramatically as it warms up. A bit more chocolatey sweetness and some nutty flavors come out. It's nice, but not fantastic.
M - Rather thin, with perhaps slightly too much of a carbonation bite.
Overall, it's all right. I'm happy to finish the glass, but I won't go out of my way to drink this again.
