3.85/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark amber, if not holding up your glass to a light you would easily see the brownish appearance. Very nice moderate off-white head that lingers awhile after the pour.

S: I get chocolate & dark malts as well as biscuit & toasty malt characters.

T: Chocolate malt quite evident with hints of toasty, biscuity & caramel malts. Nice dry finish.

M: Even balance between malts & hops. Medium-full body.

D: Nice drinkable beer.

I like this beer. Have only tried it a couple of times, but I could easily see myself revising my rating to boost it up a little. Would make a nice session beer.

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.
