A: Pours a hazy light chestnut brown with large brown head that stood around for a while and a sticky lacing all over the edges.
S: Aroma of molasses and roasted brown malt, nuts and light porter aromas.
T: Taste of a nice roasted brown ale. There are great nutty flavors here, a very light bittering making this a very well rounded brown ale. I am naturally biased towards brown ales and especially so when done right. This brown is clearly done well. Well attenuated, not overbittered, not flat and not too simple. Roasted malt flavors, slight toffee , coffee and molasses flavors all mixing well together.
M: Mild body with a relatively high carbonation, slightly stinging. I let it settle for a few minutes and it tasted better, but this is probably the one area that could use some work without messing with the overall product.
O: Definitely worth a try . I really enjoyed this and would buy this regularly if it were a local. I used to be a regular Brooklyn Brown ale fan, but have found it to be a little lighter than I prefer a brown ale now.

A- Amber brown ale, ruby hues to it. 1 finger of cappuccino foam head that has the consistency of sea foam. Once the foam settles it leaves a nice ring of lacing on the glass.
s- A roasted malt fragrance mixed with cola sugars and coffee.
T- a good roasted nuttiness. coffees essence and caramels.
M- Has a good balance, A bit slick on the finish but enough body to hold it's own. A very nice feel to it.
O- This is a great brown ale. Nothing overpowers anything else, it's just a well rounded beer.
