look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a Libby Porter/Stout glass

a - pours black with slight amber tint, no head at all, small amount of lacing around edge.

s - chocolate and caramel with coffee hints

t - starts smooth and sweet, like a milk chocolate bar, but not much flavor. Hint of spice. Finish is a little smoky. Not very bitter at all.

m - kind of watery, I'm wondering if something was wrong with this bottle

o - Definitely a great idea, it just needs more character and body. If I find after opening another bottle that this one was faulty, I'll re-review.

Almost perfect. Hops are correct for this ale. Beautiful color. Always consistent. An excellent one beer beer to drink. Does not loose it's attractiveness after tasting other beers. One you will always come back to again. Love it's aroma. Strong enough to have some bite when 1st tasting every time, yet keeps delivering for each one. Alcohol content is enough for you to know you're drinking this beer at half a bottle. Does not loose it's flavor as temperature changes. Great to grill with. It's that "I've got this beer you've got to try" when entertaining. Very impressive and simple, not too much going on like some beers. I'm sure all beer lovers will enjoy this one for its drinkable attitude.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight hop, yeast, and a hint of chocolate. Fits the style of an American Brown. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of yeast, hops, and hint of alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, but average aroma, feel, and body.

Serving type: on-tap
