Had on tap at an Applebee's in Lincoln, NE. Who knew?
A - Nice thick head on the pour, a dark amber brown color. Leaves decent lacing as it was being drunk. Look pretty dang good.
S - roasted malt, a bit of coffee/espresso, not a lot else. Intriguing...
T - strong malt flavor, mild bitterness on the back end. Tastes like a brown ale should in my mind.
M - definitely on the thin side for this style. Could have been better in my mind.
O - overall, not too bad, but not the best brown ale I've ever had. Drinkability wise, I could put a few down, but I'm not sure I'd want to. As an aside, I was just tickled pink that I could get it on tap at an Applebee's. I was thinking the only half-way decent thing I might be able to find was Blue Moon.
Serving type: on-tap

Had this brew before but sampling right now on 8/7/13. Pours a very dark brown with about a 1-finger off white head that leaves good lacing when sipped. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part with a light hint of caramel with a slight nutty flavor. The taste is exactly the same and is very pleasing and smooth to drink. No bad aftertaste. Great anytime of the year and is available every season.
