4.43/5 rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
From a 64oz growler filled less than a day prior at the taproom.
A: A dark brown hue. Minimal head, and retention. Light does not penetrate it's brown, mahogany body. Slightly oily look.
S: Chocolate, bread, nuts, toasty. Alcohol comes through on the nose also.
T: A medium sweetness, followed by a light bitterness.
M: Full bodied for a brown ale. A true highlight of their interpretation. There is an oily, and slick feel on the palate. Medium carbonation, and a long dry finish.
Overall: This has become my favorite Brown Ale period. I do not see what they could have done to improve on this one... seriously. I say this, and I do not navigate toward Brown Ales normally. They have packed allot of good flavor into this 5.5 ABV beer. I highly recommend trying when you see it on tap. It's hard to disagree with.

Reviewed from notes.
Smoove has a small cap that died to nothing quickly, it has an opaque body colored like a loaf of rye bread.
There is a toasted, bready sweetness that pervades the nose, just a hint of honey. Also, there is a good amount of nuttiness as it begins to warm.
The flavors really take off, where the aromas did not. There is milk chocolate, more nuttiness, and a sour tang from a roasted coffee quality that pervades the finish. There is the honey again, and an almond sweetness that becomes even bigger as the beer warms. Really good brown!
This beer has a bigger medium body that is stuck somewhere between being creamy and slick.
The nose is soft, but the palate makes up for it. Some may not appreciate the tangy quality in the finish. Still, this is a solid and interesting brown ale.

A good brown ale for sure and delivers what it promises... I did find the malt complexity a bit underwhelming but it's well above the run-of-the-mill stuff that decorates the shelves. Kick of roast, lingering breadiness, hints of coffee and a medium body describe the beer for me. Personally, I like Bender better but this is very good too.
