My regular complaint with brown ales is the pairing of a big, thick body with a plain, generically roasty character. This beer does exactly what I want: It finishes dry, the body isn't too thick, and there's a long cocoa and coffee bean and deeply toasted barley. It's big flavor and easy to drink for the strength. I'll have another.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: 3.75 - Dark brown with a modest head.
S: 3.75 - Caramel with a light roast.
T: 4.0 - Quite a bit of roast in the taste, together with moderately high bitterness really cut out the sweetness. Nice caramel with a bit of a hint of dark chocolate.
M: 3.75 - Neutral texture, not too carbonated.
O: 4.0 - Not my favorite style, but this is a pretty good beer for those of us are turned off by sweetish darker beers.
