look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Amber brown to brown. Mild carbonation and a slight head that quickly dissipates. No noticeable lacing.

Smell: Strong smell of espresso up front and toasted malts throughout.

Taste: Thin and perhaps overly sweet, with hints of coffee. No chocolate to speak off.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, but a lingering bit of carbonation at the end.

Drinkability: High. With only 5.5 ABV I can see putting back quite a few of these at a sitting.

A-Pours hazelnut brown with a robust tan head that retains masterfully. This is a really pretty brew. The head leaves thick collars of lacing.

S-Oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie dough. Sugar cookies too. Lightly nutty. Light coffee and milk chocolate. Not incredibly intense but unique and very pleasing.

T-Great cookie flavors. Oatmeal choco-chip cookie dough is my best description. Light nuts and cocoa powder. Light roast coffee. Molasses and brown sugar with a long toasty finish.

M-Feels bigger than a sub 6% ABV brew. Quite creamy. Massaging carbonation. A bit chewy.

O/D-I enjoyed this one. If I could get this regularly I could see myself drinking this a lot. I could see this going perfectly in several different scenarios. Would pair well with a ton of food too.

A: Pours a beautiful carmel, deep reddish brown with a thin, tan head.
S: Rather muted. Slight hints of roasty malts and toffee with some carmel notes.
T: what it lacked in aroma, it makes up for in taste, ten fold. Intense roasted malts with sweet chocolate and carmel. I get some black coffee overtones. The blend from roasted malts to sweetness to a blend of the two at the back is perfection personified.
M: medium carbonation, but very smooth and slightly creamy. A nice blend of roasted malts and sweet carmel and toffee hang around for a while.
O: thoroughly enjoyed this. Needs to be available in Ohio. This is very complex and easily one of the best browns i have had. By the way, do as the label says try this with a cigar....bliss.

Thanks to AbeFroman for sharing this one at NoSignsOfPain's birthday bottleshare hosted by mrbubbler.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and some nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a pretty good level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink but nothing too exciting going on in my opinion.
