Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Boulevard Ales pint glass
From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $1.67 (I think)
Purchased: July 26, 2014

Poured a dark red, almost mahogany color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white head that dissipated pretty quick. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top. Light bubbles coming up from the bottom.
Smelled caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, chocolate, espresso and some rye.
Tasted roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, chocolate, espresso and hot cocoa.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Not a bad brown ale overall. It grew on me a bit as it went down.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a medium brown color and a clear texture. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.
S: A typical aroma for a brown ale: Nuttiness, with some malt mixed in as well.
T: Tasted of the old brown ale nuttiness, a good shot of malt, and a hint of chocolate in the finish. This is a pretty standard flavor for the style, but still pretty solid and straightforward.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.
O: Nothing overly spectacular here, but it's definitely drinkable. Worth a look.
