Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: cjgator3 on 12-05-2008

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.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured nearly black with a one finger mocha head. Half finger of retention and good lace rings.

S - Odd aroma. Can't pin it down, but it's nice. Chocolate, nutty, toffee notes.

T - Chocolate, very much a double nut brown with lot's of chocolate, nuts, and toffee notes. Just an amped up brown ale.

M - Nice light carbonation. Full body and a dry tobacco-like finish.

O/D - Very much what they tried to put together, I think. A nice beer that was pretty drinkable for the ABV.

Short review from a fly at Cigar City.
The nose is rich, with notes of notes, chocolate and molasses. The palate mainly follows the nose but is sadly less expressive, a bit faint with not much length in it. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky but a bit thin.
