A: Clear, dark crimson with a touch of brown. Thick,rocky off-white head.

A: Rich Caramel and coffee, sweet alchohol. Dried fruit leather. Nutty. Low hop aroma.

T: Earthy Hops, Caramel and Molasses, coffee. Stone Fruit esters. A noticable bitterness and alcohol in the end.

M: Silky smooth, Medium body, Low carbonation. Medium finish.

Overall: Perfect fall beer. Picked up 3 bottles to compare to a clone I tried to make. Definetely picking out the chocolate malt in the flavor and black malt in aroma, and perhaps the sugar additions gives it that molasses flavor. A little surpised at the light booziness. Pretty sure it's there but perhaps just my palate tonight.

Randomly grabbed so wasn't prepared to do a full review but it was so good I had to put something down.

Great Brown Ale; Smooth, sweet at times, hoppy, balanced. Looks dark and seems like it should be heavier but it is very easy to drink. Up there with DFH Brown and Smuttynose for me. I'll be grabbing this again soon.
