Tasted on-tap 05/22/07 at Bungalo Billiards in Chantilly, VA.
Dark brown (almost black) in color with a nice light brown head. Nice robust hoppy and malty aroma and flavor. A very nicely balanced beer with lots of citrusy hops, roastiness, and some chocolate. Medium bodied and very smooth. Very sessionable.
A very nice Robust American Brown Ale ... seek this one out.
Per H&L website: Cascade hops.
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark black hue with a amber highlights with a thin, tan-brown 1-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves a wispy lace leaving s nice trail down the glass.
S: Solid malt aroma with a hints of caramel and coffee.
T: Dark rich ale with a generous sweetness and a great coffee flavor. Slight chocolate and caramel overtones.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Very good brown ale. Excellent profile and flavors.
