look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color capped by a rather modest head; a few streaks of lacing linger

Smell: Chocolate, brown bread and walnut

Taste: Chocolate, up front, with brown bread and walnut tones building into the middle; the sweetness builds a notch, after the swallow, and the chocolate returns to dominate the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not normally a style I would seek out, this is a pretty nice brown ale; low on the hops but big on the chocolate and nut tones

Pours opaque very dark brown with cola edges. The 1/2 inch khaki head fades to a ring and thin cap on top and leaves spots of lace.

The smell is of chocolate, coffee and hazelnut.

The taste follows the smell with coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and a faint hop finish.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation.

A solid American brown ale with chocolate, coffee and hazelnut flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Quite spritzy with a club soda flavor. Brown color with plenty of foam. Not much in the way of aromatics, though there are walnuts in the nose as you sip. Maybe it's my imagination, but there is a whiff of coconut as well.

Alright, it is slightly nutty as advertised. The first sip is pretty wretched, but for some reason it gets better. There is some sweetness and plenty of roasted grain. Very fizzy stuff. Overall, it's quite flat flavored. Dry and bitter dishwater aftertaste.

A mouthful of brown carbonation that wears out its welcome quickly. From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.
