3.1/5 rDev -22.5%
Served in a tulip glass.
Is it weird that it took my buddy's fiance to get me to see the double entendre at play here? Regardless, this stuff pours a fairly deep ruby-brown topped by a finger of glowing off-cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-roasted barley and watered-down maple syrup. A slight bit of vague nuttiness appears as well. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a twinge of lightly-acrid coffee. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a meek beer, one that just seems like it may have been trying too hard to be something better than it is.

Oddly named with an equally goofy label, thankfully the beer itself is good!
Pours a tawny brown into a tulip glass, light tan head of foam ebbs away slowly. Minimal spotty lacing, a finger of foam settles to a bare string of wispy bubbles around the edge after awhile. Reddish glints in the light, somewhat transparent.
Dry earthy aroma, a combination of roast malt and vague hops.
Flavors are dry and bitter, big roasty malt rides alongside dry bitter bakers chocolate, though there's a hint of carob and creamy chocolate sweetness. Some grassy chlorophyll from the hop additions. Nice creamy feel, light carbonation and medium bodied. Finishes very clean and smooth with a lingering hoppy bitterness. Sort of style-bending, drinks almost like a Black IPA/IBA, though brown in color with all the essential greenery.

Dark brown color with dark ruby highlights. Nice head after the pour and strong tan foam for most of the twenty two ounces.
Great roasty malt aroma with some dark, fruity undertones like black cherries. Notes of mild chocolate and coffee and just a little simmering alcoholic warmth simmers beneath the aroma.
This is a pretty yeasty brown ale. Dry, maybe chalky palate, fruity flavors mixing with dark roasted malt flavors like coffee and chocolate. Pretty good sipper, but the palate is a little too dry for me. I'm glad I tried this brew though.
