Pours a very dark brown with a small brown foam head that dissipates rather quickly. Tiny bit of lacing around the edges. Aroma leads with sweet, roasted malts and alcohol. A good amount of nuttiness. A bit of caramel. Taste is wonderfully sweet caramel malts, and a touch of bitterness. Roasted nuts, coffee, and cocoa. Alcohol is very well masked, although it does come through a bit more as it warms. This one is medium bodied, a bit thick, but still very smooth. Goes down with relative ease. As a relative newcomer to Wee Heavies, this is my favorite that I've had so far.

A. Aggressive poor ¼ inch of mild thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Black/amber in color.
S. New Castle beer and dried dates.
T. Slightly watered down clone of New Castle. Like the label says mild hint of caramel, hops, and malt. Alcohol taste is astringent.
M. Crisp, again same as New Castle Brown Ale.
O. This is a very good substitute for you know what.
