Best by Nov 12, 2014.

A very dark brown brew with some reddish highlights, the off white foam starts off big but shrinks quickly leaving some lacing behind.

The smell is all Brown Ale like. ;^) Big hoppy but with more than hints of roasted malt and coffee. I think the hop and roasted malt have a nice "marriage" going on and they are celebrating the event with the coffee.

The taste just supports what I said about the smell. Nice bitter from the hops and roasted malt with a wee bit of sweetness that doesn't quite balance things out, but this is an American Brown Ale, so all is right with the world. Did I forget to mention coffee's involvement? I think it brings things together and gives this Brown Ale and extra oomph. Wow. Oomph is a word without the red squiggly lines but hoppy isn't?

Medium is what I'd use to describe the body and carbonation.

This is an excellent Brown Ale and I will enjoy drinking the other cans I have.

Serving type: can

3.86/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with a brown color, go figure. Finger worth of head that settles in but is present while drinking. Active carbonation is right for the style.

Smell: Pretty subdued overall. Cane sugar sweetness on the front. Light roasted coffee with some sweeter tones of caramel and molasses as a compliment. Mossy hops and oak round out the aroma.

Taste: Balanced, fitting roasted malts with potent coffee grounds greet the palate. A pleasant caramelized sugary body balances out a pretty heavy front. Balanced notes from both join force to create a finish with roasted coffee accents and dark, mature malts.

Mouthfeel: Pleasant transitions from roasted and dry, to sweet, to a pleasant combination on the finish. Carbonation is low but plays well in this beer.

Overall: This is a very tasty and interesting representation of the style. Has the nice dark roasted notes of a stout while providing the drinkability and sweeter notes of a brown ale.

Serving type: can
