Thanks Dave for sharing!
Quick review from written notes.
Reddish dark brown, ruby glint in the light. Tan foam fades to a skim, thin collar around the edges. Wisps on the surface.
Some spicy yeast aromas, clove and dry roast.
Roasty with a nice dose of toasted malt flavors, light bitterness, pipe tobacco, light hop earthiness. Smooth and light bodied, easily sessionable. Thanks again Dave!

Poured from a 64oz growler into multiple pint glasses. Thanks to Joe, Matt, Chris, and Jay for the assist!
A: Pours a deep, cola-brown color with some bubbly, sticky, light khaki foam on top. Retention was decent and a few specks of lace were left behind.
S: Some spicy belgian yeast mixed with toasted nuts and molassas.
T: The aforementioned nut and molassas with clove/cardamom and a dusting of cocoa.
M: Dry and cleansing. Suprisingly light for the style. Nice that this wasn't a one and done.
O: I really liked the fact that this was under 6%. Quite sessionable for the style. You're most welcome Matt!

Served in a snifter.
"Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?" Yup. Anyway, this stuff pours a dark-ish sienna topped by a half-finger of glowing lightly off-cream foam. The nose comprises dried maple syrup, light brown sugar, mild clove, and some light greens in the back. The taste brings in more of the same, with a duller blend of spices and some light cocoa far in the distance. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a decent little Belgian brown, but nothing remotely close to special, nor anything memorable enough to wanna grab another.

Poured into Half Acre snifter. Appears a deep chestnut with some clarity, minimal head, and no lacing. The nose features some belgian bubblegummy character with bready yeast and some clove spice. Taste is a little on the thin side with light bubble gum character, mild toast and brown malt. Not a whole lot going on here, easy drinking. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. Overall, would pass this one up in the future, just not my thing.

32oz growler from the source. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.
A - Big tan foam settles to a thick cap that has good retention and splotches of lace. Lightly hazed amber-brown body.
S - Belgian yeast, bready malts; a tad spicy. Nuts and dusty cocoa from the brown malts, as well as a bit of red fruit. Phenolic notes intensify a bit as this warms up, giving it a slightly dirty vibe.
T - The taste is a bit more like an conventional brown ale, but with a light Belgian touch to it. More cocoa and nuts and less of the spicy yeast. A bit too bitter for the style, with lightly toasty and phenolic notes in the finish.
M - Dry, medium body, lightly grainy texture, smooth carbonation, and a clean finish. No perceivable alcohol, nor would one expect any at 5.4%.
D - Pretty solid stuff. The aroma shows more Belgian character than the flavor, although I'm not the hugest fan of Half Acre's yeast strain. Pretty drinkable; I had no problem finishing the growler with Mike (AgentZero). Might order again to mix things up.
