22.4 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 7/16/2015. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, cola, herbal tea, light pepper, light chocolate, plum, pear, apple, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, cola, herbal tea, light pepper, light chocolate, plum, pear, apple, floral, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light amount of herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown bread, nuttiness, honey, light fruits, herbal, floral, grass, light chocolate, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced brown ale. All around very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/bready malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark brown with a tan head.
S: Chocolate, spice, metallic, dark fruits, burnt caramel, pepper. So much going on here.
T: Burnt caramel, honey, ripe dark fruits, leather, apple and pear, chocolate, smoke, growing hop bitterness as the bomber disappears - similar to a black IPA. Wow!
M: Much thicker than you'd expect for a 7.8% abv brew. Very nice.
O: This beer is fantastic. I picked this up at a Binny's in Chicago. After watching Brewdogs I wanted to try one of their originals, and this was the cheapest. I'm so glad I picked this up, and am really surprised it's (apparently) retired. I would definitely recommend this beer.
