4/5  rDev -1.2%

Appearance: Served a hazed, dark brown body with a scant, light tan-hued head, though the beer was filled to near overflowing.

Smell: A blend of coffee-ish roastiness and heavily toasted bread, with little mingling notes of chocolate and nuttiness in between.

Taste: Predominately malty; its toasty, roasty, and hinting of nuts, cocoa, and very mild coffee with a soft sweetness akin to a tittle of brown sugar. Earthy, lightly herbaceous hops with a fine amount of bitterness. Remains mainly malty as you near the finish, though it does manage to dry out at the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Drinkability: A straight-up enjoyable brown ale that's rather versatile. Pair it with food, don't pair it with food, whatever you want, really.

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a slightly hazy deep chestnut brown color with a one-finger tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of deep toasted malts with solid amounts of nuttiness and hints of roast. Also present are mild amounts of earthy hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells - simple yet refined. Dark caramel malts with good amounts of toastiness kick things off and are joined quickly by hints of roasted malts. Mild amounts of dark chocolate and earthy hops come into play midway through the sip, both fading out into a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with solid carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this is a well done beer for the style that doesn't try to overshoot anything. Well worth a shot.
