3.49/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured a dark brown body with one finger head on top of a hearty aroma of roasted malts, some bread to them, caramel and a good amount of chocolate. Unfortunately, the beer itself does not deliver like the aroma. Medium bodied, a little sticky, I get some minor sweetness from caramel and chocolate but there doesn't seem to be any balance as the roasted malts dominant and the beer is mostly dry with a drying finish. And there really isn't much more to say because this is not a real flavorful beer, either (not going to say it's watery, though).

North Carolina

3.86/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep brown pour with a frothy one finger head that gives way to a thin ring on the glass and leaves a nice lace throughout the drink.

Smell: Sweet malt with hints of coffee, light hop spice in the rear of the nose.

Taste: Overwhelming sweet kick up front with a coffee like middle. The hops seem to sneak in middle to late drink, giving way to a clean finish. Just a slight lingering of coffee in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium carbonation, more pronounced in the back of the mouth. Clean drinking and finishing beer.

Overall: A good example of Brown Ale. Refreshing and has just enough body to it to be a good drinking beer.
