4.16/5 rDev +4%
picked this one up in chicago when i was there not too long ago. enjoyed from a half acre snifter.
a - brew poured an attractive glimmering brown that settled much darker into the glass than the pour. not much head to speak of and what was there was gone quickly leaving a thin ring of bubbles on the surface clinging to the glass.
s - classic brown with roasted malts. some coffee, some toast, mostly roast...some chocolate.
t - again, big roast on this otherwise seemingly classic brown. some coffee, some chocolate, but big roast. there is definitely a brown ale underneath as opposed to something more stouty without all that roast.
m - big and bold.
o - overall a nice brown but with the roast turned up to 12. i love a good brown and this is a good brown. the roast is a bit heavy and i wish it was dialed back a hair, but it is still a solid beer and one that i would drink again and again.

A: Pours a rich woody brown with a nice tan head.
S: Light mocha, thick molasses and dark bread, cocoa. Robust aroma.
T: Charred grain, light citric hoppiness, chocolate and brown sugar, lightly nutty.
M: Thick and chewy. Great mouthfeel.
O: This tastes pretty good, and really shines in the mouthfeel. Whoever came up with the name should be fired, though.

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.
