3.73/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. can poured into a 16 oz. Founders snifter.
Appearance; Pours a deep brown with a nice fluffy khaki head that fades quickly. Splotchy lacing remains as I drink the beer.
Smell: Some coffee and roast, hints of chocolate, and also a surprising amount of hops and pine. A good deal of earthiness for a brown ale.
Taste: Chocolate malt, some roast, coffee and some pine come in. Notes of grass and a bit of nuttiness as well.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Not too thin but very easy drinking.
Overall: A quite enjoyable session-brown ale from NOLA. A good beer to have around and something I will keep in my fridge for sure.
Serving type: can

Poured into a Ninkasi Brewing pint glass. Bottom of can says Best By: 11/09/13
A- Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch dark tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.
S- Semi-sweet malty aroma brings notes of caramel and nuts.
T- Toasty malt, some milk chocolate sweetness and more nuttiness. Almost too easy to drink but that's expected from the ABV. Minimal hop bitterness.
M- A bit crisp and somewhat viscous. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- A pretty flavorful malty session beer. In some circles, it's referred to as the "slow down brown" due to the low amount of alcohol.
