On draft at DuClaw in Bowie, MD. The beer is chestnut brown with some russet highlights and a half inch of soapy, tan head. Aromas of brown bread, coconut, chocolate, chewy caramel candies, brown sugar, toffee. Coconut and toffee are the dominant flavors, followed by notes of chocolate, malt, caramel. A dessert type beer, though not overly sweet. Bready and medium bodied. A fun and interesting beer.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a dark copper-brown color with a tiny bit of off white foam. The head fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The nose of the beer is huge of a caramel and toffee smell mixed with some nice roasted malt and chocolate aromas. A little bit of a smoke smell and a moderate toasted coconut smell are there as well, giving the brew a very Samoa cookie like smell. This is very sweet and delicious smelling.

Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt taste along with a good deal of caramel and toffee sweetness. Some lighter notes of coffee are present upfront, with these growing slightly stronger as the taste moves on further toward the end. Along with the coffee increasing, the toffee fades from the tongue while the caramel gets a tad stronger. A toasted coconut and light nutty flavor comes to the tongue more toward the end as well. With a little bit of a herbal and earthy flavor joining the taste, along with the slight increase in the coffee, a moderately sweet roasted and toasted coconut flavor with a decent bitter bit from the hop and coffee is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the on the thinner and more watery side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the sweeter and more roasted flavors of the brew a thicker body would have been more appropriate and would have accentuated those flavors a bit more, which would have been nice.

Overall – A decent brown ale overall, but the feel and bitterness at the end of the taste actually took away from what I was expecting in this one. Just alight.
