Dark brown color with a one finger part beige, part caramel head.
Aroma with notes of smoked and roasted malts, creamy chocolate and home made coffee.
Delicious flavor with notes of cocoa, nuts, spices and cinnamon.
Dry aftertaste with its lingering residual notes.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Very nice American Brown Ale with perfect execution. Mellow but still flavorful. Can't go wrong with nuts and cinnamon.

It's hot outside, so an IPa or hefeweizen would fit, right? Ok, I'm going to break the trend by beating the heat with a brown ale. From a 12 ounce can, on to the beer:

The head initially forms well as it holds itself at an inch thick, then it suddently dissolves and looks like a still brown ale. It's color is closer to leather brown, and without the head, fizzy carbonation bubbles are visible from a birds-eye view. But it smells very pelasing. It smells sweet, toffee, fudge, even fruity. Very nice.

That taste, wow! Hold onto your palate, you're in for a ride! The beer starts off sweet and nutty, then a wave of smoked fruits and a touch of fudge makes this delicious brown ale even better. It's not overdone with the sweet toffee/aspect, helping create a beer that is very drinkable while being tasty.

You may not get your hands on a Huanapu, but you can easily get your hands on a Maduro Brown, and why not? This is well worth drinking.

The beer pours a dark shade of, but surprisingly clear brown. quarter inch of head that pours immediately dissipates. Aroma is quite mild, consisting of mild instant coffee and hints of caramel.
Taste is a complex blend of subtle flavor. The dominant notes are coffee, toffee, and hints of chocolate, but the flavors are not strong. The hop presence is enough to tone down any sweetness that might have been there, but does not create bitterness.
Overall this is an interesting beer, a light, approachable take on a style that is usually a lot less palatable, i'm not sure how often i'll buy it but i'm glad it's out there.
