Had one of these at Alisal Cellars in Solvang, CA USA.
A - Dark, ruby red in the glass. (I missed the head, so I can't say much about that.)
S - Roasty, malty scents.
T - Roasty, malty flavors. Grape or currant, super subtle hemp. Sweetish, but not overbearing.
M - Full.
D - Even with all the flavors, they blend together well and make this quite drinkable.

Sampling right now on 1/26/14. Bottle was chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner '14' pool ball glass.
Pours a hazy deep reddish-brown in color with just a thin off-white head. Some decent lacing was seen with each sip. Average carbonation. Lots going on with the aroma with some roasted malt, caramel, floral and toffee. The taste has even more going on and is hard to describe. A sweet dry aftertaste is noted but isn't harsh. Not bad at all and is a different brew

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/16/2013. Pours slightly cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and light hop/hemp notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark malt flavors with light hop/hemp presence; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice brown ale. Good balance and robustness of dark malt flavors and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
