Tasted in a 12 oz snifter from draught at Firkin on February 5, 2016. Look is brown with a thick tan head and lingering lacing. Smell is roasted malt.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Brown (surprise), dark, not at all cloudy. Light almond colored head. Poured from a 3 day old growler, the carbonation was still very intact.

Smell: Rich malt and coffee aromas. Very minimal hops on the nose.

Taste: True to the nose, this brew tastes of very good coffee, a tiny bit sweet or maybe its just the richness and the malt. Minimal bittering hops and I really no hoppy flavor. True to the style except for the VERY welcome addition of the coffee. I really like this beer!

Feel: This has a thinner than expected feel which is probably accurate for the style, but with all that great maltiness and coffee flavor a little bit of (more?) oats or something to add some mouth feel.

Overall: Wow. Very impressed with this brown ale. A really nice change from big thick coffee stouts, but will h lots of the great features of that style. I can't wait to try this fresh from the tap!
