Draft service into a shaker pint glass at Cafe Tu Tu Tango in Orlando.
A: Clear, medium brown color with scant off-white residue of foam. No lacing remains on the glass.
S: Very mild with faint wood and even more faint (and very unexpected) lemon curd.
T: Begins off-dry, with earth and brown sugar that leave a slight impression of cola, complete with an expected acidic presence. Mild cocoa emerges in the middle, slightly bitter, with earlier flavors still present but fading. The finish is drying, with a more significant dark roasted grain presence that stays labile on the palate. Bitterness is generally mild, influenced mostly from the chocolate presence earlier.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly creamy and acidic on the palate but in balance, with low carbonation.
D: This brown ale strikes an appealing and interesting balance between sweet and dry. While not extreme, its flavor qualities are more assertive than the norm for the style, making this beer memorable. Its smell is more typical for the style, coming across as rather vacant. It is successful for keeping the interest of the drinker, while remaining true to style and leaving little fatigue on the palate.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Dark brown, opaque, 2 fingers width of light tan head, pretty good retention, but leaves effectively no lacing.
S: Dark roasted malts, heavy cream, char, chocolate malt.
T: Follows the nose with cream and roasted malt. A good amount of bakers chocolate, some herbaceous notes, and mild bitterness. Tasty.
M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the heavy side but appropriate, drinkability is good.
O: Not my favorite style, but quite an enjoyable beer. Certainly worth a try.
