Notes/Commercial Description:
Pours dark brown in color with a tan head with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toasted bread. Flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate notes open with interjecting notes of wood and herbal bitterness from English hop varietals then moving back into semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee and is dried out in the finish with toasted malt notes that resemble roast peanuts.

Review from April 2011, Poured from an (undated) 750ml purchased January 2011:

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a swelling, cappuccino colored head... as the head takes up more than 50% of the glass, it's evident that something is amiss for a Brown Ale...

S: Extremely strong scent of bacterial infection, completely masking any other flavors that could possibly be lying underneath.

T: Yeah, it's infected alright. Undrinkable, even from the standpoint of imagining it as just a sour, sour beer. Stale, moldy peanuts wrapped in a vinegar-soaked piece of cardboard is all I can say.

M: My sink did not comment on the 24 ounces of this brew that was forced down it, so I have nothing.

O: Well, I had this beer before on tap at CCB and it was fantastic. A really bold, creamy, chocolatey brown ale is what I was in the mood for and instead I received nothing but disappointment in the form of a bottle filled with half an inch of yeasty sediment.

I can't give 1's across the board because I know this beer's actual potential. Hopefully CCB has done a little better with their quality control since the time I purchased this brew. I had heard stories of random infections in CCB brews but this beer confirmed it.
