A - above average dark brown. small and fleeting head. this is much darker that the previous times i've had this beer, and i prefer this level of darkness. this six pack came in brown bottles as opposed to the clear bottles i'm used to hobgoblin being in, i like this. also, the artwork from the label to the caps to the text on the cardboard are all very attractive.
S - malty sweetness with hints of nuttyness and something else...i think i'm storing this beer too cold and it would become more fragrant if a bit warmer.
T - solid here, malty sweetness with faint touches of chocolate, nuts and coffee. there are some very pleasant light bitter notes.
M - simple. smooth and sweet. goes down very easy.
D - this is a dangerous one for me personally, i could drink many of these in the course of a night more than a few nights in a row and be perfectly happy with it. this is a very solid, well balanced session brew.

A - Clear dark brown with red highlights. A short, tan/light brown head that leaves a continuous lace.
S - Lot's of roasty malt and neutral hops.
T - Taste follows the nose plus a bit of chocolate toward the back.
M - Thin and finishes a bit dry. Carbonation is just right for the style.
O - Very good. This is definitely a brown and certainly not an ESB of any sort, by the way. Not a Sam Smith Nut Brown or Fuller's 1845, but darned good. It really lacks the body that I expect from a well-made northern brown. And, as reviewed, it's a bit too dry- which may be due to the lack of body..
